Top of the Blogs: The Lib Dem Golden Dozen #283

Welcome to the Golden Dozen, and our 283rd 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 (15-21 July, 2012), 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. The Cabinet Reshuffle: it’s all done. by Richard Morris on A View from Ham Common.
Richard reshuffles the Cabinet for David Cameron. How very “Big Society”.

2. ‘Plenty of Lib Dems (MPs) will join Tories’ by Neil Monnery on The Rambles of Neil Monnery.
It started with a tweet…

3. Here’s Chris Huhne with some pretty girls by Charlotte Henry on Digital Politico.
Promo photo.

4. Results of my ‘Which Tory for Chancellor?” poll are out… by Richard Morris on A View from Ham Common.
The ‘sixth Lib Dem’ won it by a country mile.

5. Prominent Southend Lib Dem Cllr quits the party by Neil Monnery on The Rambles of Neil Monnery.
A defection on Southend Council.

6. GUEST POST Don’t make the dull middle class go to university by ‘Dr Anonymous’ on Liberal England.
“Would it would be a good thing if British universities were attended by far fewer middle class students?”

7. Sorry is the hardest word? on Peter Black AM’s blog.
Peter Black agrees with Nick, that Liberal Democrats should stop apologising.

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. Ever wondered what goes on inside a Council Chamber? by Matt J. McLaren on Wisdom and Power.
“Matt J. McLaren on the surreal goings-on in Haringey’s Civic Centre…” (Submitted by mattjmclaren via LibDig.)

9. 10 principles for the management of internal elections in membership organisations by Andy Strange on Strange Thoughts.
“In this post I am proposing some principles on which I believe the rules for internal elections in membership organisations should be based.” (Submitted by andyms via LibDig.)

10. How does the Olympics make you feel? by Alex Foster on Niles’s Blog.
“The piece in the New York Times is awesome!” (Submitted by Alex Foster via email.)

11. Back to the 1950s with Fairy liquid’s sexist advert by Caron Lindsay on Caron’s Musings.
“It takes a lot of dishes and a lot of washing up, for Mum to build an athlete”. And it took Liberal Youth Scotland’s Sophie Bridger to call Proctor and Gamble out on their sexist advertisement.

12. Richard Allan Woos Notting Hill on Jonathan Fryer’s blog.
Lord Allan of Hallam wooed Sheffield students with balloons. What has he got in store for the denizens of Kensington and Chelsea?

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