Top of the Blogs: The Golden Dozen #67

Welcome to the 67th of our weekly round-ups from the Lib Dem blogosphere, featuring the seven most popular stories according to click-throughs from the Aggregator (25th-31st May), together with a hand-picked quintet you might otherwise have missed.

Let’s get straight down to it, in descending order of popularity:

1. A response to Chris Rennard on Crewe & Nantwich on Linda Jack’s Lindyloo’s Muze blog.
Is it time to revise the party’s by-election strategy? (And look out for the ding-dong comments battle between Linda and Paul Walter).

2. A highly professional but soulless campaign
on Bernard Salmon’s The Sound of Gunfire blog.
A dissection of the party’s Crewe literature: did it strike home?

3. Henley-on-Tenterhooks… on Helen Duffett’s Painting The Town Orange blog.
“In the words of Mr Cameron himself, ‘Bring it on.’” But when will he do the deed? Is Dave dithering?

4. Has Bob Shaw done another runner?
on Paul Walter’s Liberal Burblings blog.
Is it really good-bye to the multi-pseudonymed Bob?

5. Paddy writes to me! on Jo Anglezarke’s Jo’s Jottings blog.
And to you and you… Our former leader is sharing the Henley love.

6. Henley by-election: Conservatives off to a slow and troubled start
on Pink Dog’s blog.
Trailing in the Lib Dems’ wake.

7. A touch of farce enters the Conservative Henley selection
on Lib Dem Voice.
Mark Pack reveals the Tories’ covert campaigning.

And now to the five slots we reserve under the category ‘well worth reading even if they didn’t get the most clicks this week’. Remember, if you do want to highlight a Lib Dem blog article published in the past seven days – your own, or someone else’s – all you have to do is drop me a line at [email protected] (providing the web-link and author, and any tagline comment you care to have published).

8. Environmentalism Versus Electability on Charlotte Gore’s Do What You’re Told: Don’t Vote Lib Dem blog.
A warm welcome back to Charlotte, who resumes her blogging career with a bang.

9. Personal carbon credits are wrong on Alex Folkes’ A Lanson Boy blog.
Yes to personal responsibility, no to massive government bureaucracy.

10. Londoners for Liberty
by Femme de Resistance on the Forceful and Moderate blog.
Another warm welcome back, this time to Femme de Resistance, reporting on Londoners determined to make Boris’s pro-banning case for him.

11. What are the lessons for the Liberal Democrats from May’s elections?
by Lynne Featherstone MP on Lib Dem Voice.
Lynne’s manifesto for a Lib Dem advance at the next election.

12. Eurovision Politics Contest on Nich Starling’s Norfolk Blogger blog.
The burning question of last week: did Terry Wogan’s anti-Eurovision outburst deserve nul points?

And that’s it for another week… happy blogging and Henley campaigning.
