blogged elsewhere, Anna Lo: an update…


On my personal blog Gyronny Herald I have posted a response to comments made on A Pint of Unionist Lite.

Like many people last evening, I received an email from the leader and deputy leader of the Liberal Democrats on the subject of voter registration. Whilst I agree that we should encourage everyone that can / should be on the electoral register to be on it. I feel that I must point out that the letter as sent out has fatal flaws in it: for once again, Northern Ireland is different.

Northern Irish quarter of Golden Dozen


Featured on Liberal Democrat VoiceEvery week Liberal Democrat Voice produces a Golden Dozen of the top Lib Dem blogs of the week.

The Golden Dozen features the seven most popular stories beyond Lib Dem Voice according to click-throughs from the Aggregator, together with a hand-picked quintet, normally courtesy of LibDig, you might otherwise have missed.

This week a little bit of history was made as 3 of the twelve, indeed three of those most popular seven, were written here in Northern Ireland. Here is how they appeared on the list:

1. David Laws Doesn’t Want to Return to Government on Stephen’s Liberal Journal.
“It is a sad case when someone is forcibly outed and loses their va-va voom as appears to be the case with one of the sharpest minds in the Lib Dem parliamentary team.”

3. Outrage at action of liberal youth executive on Michael Carchrie Campbell’s Gyronny Herald.
Unimpressed by their endorsement of Tim Farron for President: “I am outraged by this usurpation of the members’ rights.”

5. Stephen Gilbert MP on Why He is Backing Tim Farron for President on Stephen’s Liberal Journal.
Tim Farron sets his record straight (so to speak).

Stephen has featured on the list many times in the past but this is Michael’s first appearance. It shows how on the pulse and how well crafted the blogs from the two bloggers who contribute to this blog are. We do hope to add more contributors soon.

For those of you who are aware of events over this last week this achievement is even more outstanding.
