Total Politics Blog Awards - Top Lib Dem Blogs

Well, more results from the Total Politics Blog Awards - this time on the UK's best Lib Dem bloggers.

I am, astonishingly, placed 7th in the top 100 - alongside Liberal Vision and one place behind the inspiring and insightful Mark Pack. I am personally delighted for some of my friends, not least Caron (at 2nd place confirming her status as best individual blogger) , Stephen (5th), Lisa (14th), Gavin (23rd), Gordon (76th - a strong first showing) and Douglas (89th). It is also appropriate to see Andrew Reeves at 4th place - I can only imagine what he would make of it.

This is a great result for Scottish bloggers, who make up 5 of the top 10 (I'm counting Stephen as Scottish!) and demonstrates the health of the "MacBlogosphere". Other notable Scottish mentions are WiLD Women (49) and Nic Prigg (88).

Liberal Democrats to set up in Jersey? Former Nottingham Councillor Dr Mark Forskitt talks about the possibility of establishing a 'Lib Dems Abroad' branch in the offshore finance centre of Jersey. <A HREF="http://mtadier.blogspot.com/2011/12/liberal-democrats-in-jersey-interview.html>Lib Dems in Jersey</A>
