Top of the Blogs: The Lib Dem Golden Dozen #513

Welcome to the Golden Dozen, and our 513th weekly round-up from the Lib Dem blogosphere … Featuring the five most popular stories beyond Lib Dem Voice according to click-throughs from the Aggregator (25 -31 March, 2018), together with a hand-picked seven 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.  Why, after the last week, I don’t think Labour can possibly win a general election  by Nick Tyrone on NickTyrone.com.
The anti semitism and Corbyn’s pro Brext agenda will take the shine off.

2. Why does the Labour front bench find anti-semitism hard to actually deal with? by Nick Tyrone on NickTyrone.com.
They would have been on that mural if it had been about any other group, argues Nick.

3. Open dissent grows within the Labour Party by Peter Black on Peter Black.
After a post-election honeymoon, the shine has come off Corbyn.

4. The legacy of the SDP by Stephen Williams on Stephen Williams’ blog.
An understated success?

5. Does political campaigning make a difference to election results? New evidence published by Mark Pack on Mark Pack.
Let’s not all put our feet up.

And now to the seven blog-posts that come highly recommended, regardless of the number of Aggregator click-throughs they attracted.

6. My response to the Liberal Democrat policy consultation on immigration by Andrew Hickey on Head of State.
I thought I was unimpressed by this consultation. I am a wide-eyed fangirl in comparison to Andrew. Powerful stuff.

7.  A few questions I have about TERF scare tactics by Jennie Rigg on Ten KitKats and a motoring atlas.
When did you last have to show your birth certificate when you went to the loo?

8. Recalling ambassadors is counter-productive by Jane Chelliah on Feminist Mama.
Who’s going to tell the Russians we are fed up with them now?

9. Don’t you just hate it when journalists explain to us what gender is? by Andrew Page on A Scottish Liberal.
Take that, Hadley Freeman.

10. The Gender Police and Women’s Loos by Helen Belcher on Challenging Journeys, Phase 2.
Another very useful resource in rebutting all the nonsense going round at the moment

11. Christopher Wylie’s evidence shows how a bunch of modern colonialists did it by Josephine Hayes on Josephine Hayes.
On Wylie’s evidence to  the parliamentary committee.

12. But could Remain win a second referendum by Jonathan Calder on Liberal England.
Not unless we change our attitude

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