This is a new meme on me, but a worthwhile way of allowing me to promote five blogs that make me think.
Many thanks to Darren Lilleker for tagging me to do this from an original meme HERE.
So, in no particular order:
1) Paul Walter "Liberal Burblings" - Brilliant Lib Dem blog. Full of commentary on policy, Witty comments about the media and a brilliant and regular dismemberment of David Cameron.
2) Ed Maxfield - He always made me laugh and think when I worked on campaigns with him. His Eastern European knowledge also makes him able to speak with authority on matters in Eastern Europe which is both educational and funny. He is also a Norwich City fan.
3) Hunter and Shooter - Justin Hinchcliffe, someone whose policies I am totally opposed to, but gives a completely different view on all things Tory. He's also not afraid to criticise his own party. Refreshingly honest, just a shame he has it in so much for Lib Dems and I wish he wouldn't refer to me as dim !
4) The Thunder Dragon - The newest addition to my blogroll. On the button with news, opinion and a touch of humour. Another Tory it is not always easy to agree with, but whose posts and comments are often agreeable, if you know what I mean.
5) David Anthony - Another Tory who educates and does not lecture. Clever and informative. A blog worth a read every day.
Apparently the small print of this meme/blogtag is to tell everyone that
The participation rules are simple:
