Thoughts on internal elections

The results from the Liberal Democrat federal internal elections came out this morning, and you can see the results here (for a list of who was elected) and here (for the full voting breakdown). Various people on blogs (see Jennie and Andy, for example) and Twitter have been discussing the results and the way we […]

As it’s follow Friday, who should I be following?

As part of my realisation that it’s been nearly ten years since I started blogging (along with the whole ‘Has it really been that long? God, I’m getting old…’ thoughts) it occurs to me that I don’t follow as many British political blogs as I used to. Part of this is for the very good […]

Career opportunities

With almost ten years of blogging experience behind me (and just typing that makes me feel old) I think it’s time that I found some ways to cash in all the time I’ve wasted on it to make a quick buck. Sorry, what I meant to say there was ‘utilise my extensive cross-platform social media […]

Solidarity

Somehow, I’d missed this story until I saw it mentioned on Aaro and Cohen Watch – blogger Dave Osler and others have been taken to court seemingly for listing a few facts and because of someone posting a slightly insulting comment. Not being a lawyer, a judge or anyone else who can help in the […]

Meanwhile, in Blogtopia

Here’s a positive blogging story for you. An intrepid blogger reads a story in the paper (or ‘the MSM’, as I believe the cool kids refer to it) and then does some research and investigation into it which reveals that the whole thing has been manufactured in an attempt to create a scandal. The whole […]

But are you liberal with your bets?

Can’t remember if I’ve ever suggested this before back in the mists of blogtime, but I was playing poker online last night and wondering how many other of my readers and fellow bloggers play, and whether there’d be interest in setting up some sort of game or tournament for British political bloggers/Lib Dem bloggers or […]

You’re entitled to your opinion, but I’m entitled to mine

Last night I was going to write about my two cents in the latest spat between Charlotte Gore and James Graham but managed to get distracted from doing that when I noticed a rather inflammatory-titled post on Liberal Vision. Of course, what you see there now isn’t quite the same – or quite as inflammatory […]

Nostalgia Tours

Having just got back into the habit of regular blogging, I’ve been rediscovering the habits that go along with it such as the occasional perusing of my Sitemeter pages (and I’m still Old Skool enough to be using them, not your newfangled Google Analytics or whatever) and noticed this afternoon that I was getting some […]

I shall call it ‘the wheel’

Apparently, someone’s created a mailing list for Lib Dem bloggers. Now, why hasn’t anyone thought of that before? This post wasn’t just motivated by the fact I’m so far out of the Lib Dem blogging loop that I wasn’t invited to join, though I was amused to note Mark Valladares referring to 2006 as the […]

New look

Yes, for those few of you who still visit here who aren’t bots, I’ve given the blog a new look as the old one was starting to look a bit dated. As I’ve promised many times before, I’m going to try and blog a bit more frequently again in future just so my status as […]
