Top of the Blogs: The Lib Dem Golden Dozen #198

Welcome to the Golden Dozen, and our 198th weekly round-up from the Lib Dem blogosphere … Featuring the seven most popular stories beyond Lib Dem Voice according to click-throughs from the Aggregator (28 November – 4 December, 2010), together with a hand-picked quintet, normally courtesy of LibDig, you might otherwise have missed.

Don’t forget: you can sign up to receive the Golden Dozen direct to your email inbox — just click here — ensuring you never miss out on the best of Lib Dem blogging.

As ever, let’s start with the most popular post, and work our way down:

1. Those 103 petition signatory PPCs and where their contituencies are on the LibDem target list on Paul Walter’s Liberal Burblings.
Not the most winnable ones. “Make of that what you will,” says Paul.

2. I’m leaving for good on Lisa Harding’s Spiderplant Land.
Lisa’s taking her subscription where it will be appreciated. Good on her, I say!

3. Jeffrey Archer is right on Matthew Harris for Hendon.
Why Matthew didn’t sign that petition (see 1, above).

4. Nick Clegg MP: no confidence from party? by Michael Carchrie Campbell on Gyronny Herald.
Michael suggests a challenge.

5. Jenny Willott – is she making a stand on tuition fees? by Lisa Harding on Spiderplant Land.
We’ll soon find out…

6. Day 3621: Is it Time to Recall… Aaron Porter? by Richard Flowers on The Very Fluffy Diary of Millennium Dome, Elephant.
“Remind me: what have they got those students marching for again? I cannot recall,” says Richard.

7. The American view of Clegg by Myrddin Edwards on Freedom Central.
What the cables say.

And now to the five blog-posts that come highly recommended, regardless of the number of Aggregator click-throughs they attracted. These are normally chosen using the LibDig bookmarking website for party members, the site where you can highlight blog-posts you want to share with your fellow Lib Dems. Remember, though, you’re still more than welcome to nominate for the Golden Dozen a Lib Dem blog article published in the past seven days – your own, or someone else’s – using the steam-powered method of e-mail … all you have to do is drop a line to [email protected]

8. Arguing On Tuition Fees on Jazz Hands Serious Business.
“In which a suggestion is made about how Liberal Democrats can criticise Higher Education proposals while limiting damage to the party.” (Submitted by via LibDig.)

9. Dear Lighter Later Campaign: Sod Off on Jennie Rigg’s blog.
“In which I complain about the idiots who want to mess about with our clocks all the time.” (Submitted by jennierigg via LibDig.)

10. What exactly are these bozos trying to achieve here? by Alix Mortimer on People’s Republic of Mortimer.
“Alix is back blogging and reminding us all what we’ve been missing.” (Submitted by markpack via LibDig.)

11. Say “Oh go on then!” to AV on Jennie Rigg’s blog.
“In which I announce my plan to help out the Yes campaign with total unbridled enthusiasm.” (Submitted by jennierigg via LibDig.)

12. More in sorrow than in Ongar on Jonathan Calder’s Liberal England.
“How many people does it take to change a lightbulb in Brentwood and Ongar? A lot if you involve the CRB.” (Submitted by Niklas Smith via LibDig.)

And that’s it for another week. Happy blogging ‘n’ reading ‘n’ nominating.
