The jury has deliberated and here are the results of The Rambles of Neil Monnery panel:
The following blogs got votes:
No brainer. Caron is a fine blogger and doesn’t just focus on politics (any F1 blog of hers will certainly get my trigger finger on the hyperlink) but it is her politics stuff that gets her this vote. Blogs often and varies it from the mundane to the opinion-filled. It is how I like my blogs. A little bit of everything.
Most people would think Kel and myself wouldn’t get on. Most people think I hate all feminists. Kel is a feminist. However we do get on and her political viewpoint is about as akin to mine as I know. Her blogs very often mirror what I’m thinking in my head – just with less swear words and more clever words. I think this proves a) I don’t hate all feminists and b) I don’t hate all feminists.
If you don’t know why Olly’s on this list then I suspect you don’t do political blogging of any sort.
Probably the biggest surprise (to me) on this list. When filling out my voting form and thinking about blogs I visit more often than other I realised that I go here quite often. If I do then that surely means I’m interested in what the author has to say.
I like this blog because it is a good mix of short punchy pieces and the odd rant. Also again is isn’t just partizan BS all the way through.
The biggest surprise (to me) on this list. I don’t know the author at all hardly and don’t think I’ve ever really interacted with him but I find myself when scanning through Lib Dem Blogs clicking on his pieces more often than I don’t. Says everything.
Hands up who thought I was voting for this blog? Anyone? Exactly. Well I filled out my voting form based on what blogs I read most and not on personality. Whatever I think about some of her political stances her blog is one of the better ones out there and provokes more discussion than most and whatever you think about it – isn’t that a big part of the blogosphere?
Lib Dem Voice
Yeah not exactly a shock. Good starting point for Liberal Democrat views on a variety of topics.
You can vote for your favourite political bloggers behind that link but if you haven’t checked out any of the blogs I’ve mentioned I think you’d be well advised to do so at some point.
Note: I didn’t vote for David Allen Green @ The New Statesman due to me seeing it not as a political blog in the main. If I did that blog would also of seen a high vote given to it from this jury.
