  • Top 20 political blogs

    Iain Dale is asking people to nominate their top twenty political blogs so that he can compile a top 100 for his latest book.

    These things are impossible to do, but glancing briefly through my feed reader, I reckon these are all good… but I’ve probably got them in the wrong order, missed people out, and made myself look stupid. But hey, no change there…

    1. S J Howard (of course…)
    2. Iain Dale’s Diary
    3. Guido Fawkes
    4. Nick Robinson’s Newslog
    5. Downing Street Says
    6. Dizzy Thinks
    7. Charlie Beckett
    8. James O’Malley: Living Legend
    9. RecessMonkey
    10. Adam Boulton
    11. PM
    12. NHS Blog Doc
    13. Random Acts of Reality
    14. Boris Johnson
    15. Burning Our Money
    16. Dirty Leftie
    17. Paul Linford
    18. Mark Mardell
    19. Tim Worstall
    20. Tim McLoughlin

    So what are your top tips? Hop over to Mr Dale’s website and post your list. You have until 15th August. Obviously, there’s no dispute about Number 1… ;-)

    Ben Brogan’s blog on the Daily Mail is probably the best one going at the moment.

    Comment from Mort Karman

    My computer crashed and had to be brought back from the dead. It took a call to HP in India, but I am back.
    I thought we had the last of the “surprises” in our new home/ Boy, was I wrong.
    Last night I got up to pee about 2 in the morning. By the dim glow of the bathroom night light I thought I saw something in the bowl. At first I thought it was just someone had forgotten to flush. But then the thing started to crawl out of the water and up the inside of the bowl. I quickly slammed the lid.
    This woke my wife up.
    We peeked into the bowl and saw a bat the size of a large frog trying to climb out.
    I quickly slammed the lid shut again and flushed several times/
    When we got up the courage to again open the lid the bat had been sent down the pipes.
    It is a good thing my wife did not have to pee first because she might have been bitten on her behind.
    She has told me if I don’t get rid of all bats she will refuse to use the toilets and will go potty outside.
    I don’t know how to get rid of bats.
    Perhaps I can get an exterminator with balls.
