Top of the Blogs: The Golden Dozen #78

It’s my turn to collate the 78th of our weekly round-ups (10th – 16th August ) of the seven most popular click-throughs from LibDemBlogs, plus another five that you might have missed.  So, blame me that it’s taken all week to show up.

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

1 Tons More Fun In the Awards – An Appeal To Every Lib Dem Blogger! – a truly excellent suggestion from Alex Wilcock to make LDV’s annual blog competition even harder to judge, by encouraging each blogger to winkle out their own best posts, rather than leave it to the dim recollections of their readers

2 Utter devastation – our second post is complete different, and tells of Cllr David Walkers recent bereavement.  My thoughts are with you, Cllr Walker.

3 A Watford Conservative speaks about Ian Oakley – a second consecutive week for new blogger Sara Bedford, as she fisks the thoughts of a local opponent.

4 An abusive relationship on Peter Black’s blog.  No, not England -v- Wales, but something about something on one of them there TV channels I don’t watch.  No, not the Olympics, the other one. Sparked a healthy debate, whatever it was about.

5 Coming soon – new Lib Dem website – Paul Walters on Liberal Burblings gives us an exclusive preview of the goodies the Innovations Department are lining up for us

6 Tim Leunig: “unworkable, unreasonable and perhaps plain barmy”? (UPDATE) over on Quaequam Blog!  Catchy title, but probably not James Graham’s best post this week.

7 Green Day – another hit from Sara Bedford

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’.

8 At what point does this start becoming a men’s issue? Thought provoking stuff from Jo Christie-Smith.  Why is violence against women, perpetrated by men, seen as a women’s issue?

9 Is Tim Leunig A Marxist? Good question on Liberal England

10 What exactly is so great about the North? from Alix Mortimer.  Them’s fighting words, lass.

11 Why you might want to invest your money somewhere else if the Conservatives win the next election Because, as Liberal Bureaucrat points out, they still don’t have any policies.

12 The new party website – a different point of view – the review I’d have written if I’d gotten around to it.  The new functionality will be really, really good, if and when it works properly, but I’m just not sure about the design.
