I’ve been living (studying and working) in the UK, for (a total of) around 13 happy years; remembering England with affection ever since that time, as my second home – country.
So, here is a list of the best UK blogs:
(I snatched it from someone else, actually -hehe- and might modify it soon).
- Pickled Politics – Politics, current affairs, media and society “with a South Asian” tinge. There is nothing else in the niche that comes close.
- Slugger O’Toole – No one else does such good coverage of Northern Ireland, but the civil war is still gong on in the comments box.
- http://order-order.com (say no more…)
- Iain Dale – Enjoyable reading, and covers nearly all stories.
- The Poliblogs. A new blog started in July by Garbo (not Greta). Essentially a roundup of whatever is the current issue daily or more often. The slogan is “Monitoring the blogs so you don’t have to!”. Run by a political junkie who chooses to remain pseudonymous. All done manually by the look of it, so enjoy it now in case he gets tired. 60 posts so far.
- Select Society – Scottish, thoughtful.
- Paul Linford – Excellent writer, has an interesting view of Alistair Campbell.
- Dave’s Part – Another type of opinion
- Ellee Seymour – Good on PR. Good on Politics. Not quite so good on technology.
- Ordovicius – Says it all vigorously. Doesn’t bow down to sacred cows, especially English ones.
- Philobiblon – Politics, culture and history through a greenish, feminist lens. Ms. Bennett also authors My Paris Your Paris amd My London Your Londond.
- Articles of Faith – One of the first Times blogs. Ruth Gledhill covers religion and politics. More popular than most realise. Heaviy trafficked. Regularly breaks stories.
- Millennium Elephant – Fluffy end of the Lib Dems. Politics and the rest.
- Bloggerheads – Tim Ireland. Some excellent videos and animations. Some excellent campaigns.
- UK Polling Report – A reference source. Good analysis. Good debate.
- Gavin Ayling – A Councillor from somewhere south of Watford who is more concerned with function than image.
- Calthorpe’s Corner. A new blog from a Birmingham Councillor.
- Mike Rouse. Chief Technology Officer (i.e., ITMan-thinker-gofer-menderer) at 18 Doughty Street and player in the MessageSpace://creative setup. The only insider-technologist in these operations to blog about the technology of online politics. About Politics and Technology.
- Weblogcartoons. Probably one of UKs most popular cartoon blogs after GapingVoid. Focusses on human condition from a whimsical viewpoint. Cartoons regularly feature on the Wardman Wire.
