Twenty of the best

(DK is away)

As Mr Furious has reminded us, Iain Dale published the Total Politics Top 20 Libertarian blogs on Friday. It's as you were at the top 2, with the horned one coming a splendid second to some chap called Guido Fawkes.

I dare say my hoof-footed host will pay tribute to the excellent taste of all the fine people who cast a vote in his direction when he returns. In the meantime, here's the hit parade in full:
  1. Guido Fawkes

  2. Devil's Kitchen

  3. Old Holborn

  4. Obnoxio the Clown

  5. Underdogs Bite Upwards

  6. Tim Worstall

  7. Samizdata

  8. Boatang & Demetriou

  9. Dick Puddlecote

  10. LPUK Blog

  11. Last Ditch

  12. Constantly Furious

  13. Anna Raccoon

  14. Freedom 2 Choose

  15. Rantin' Rab

  16. Plato Says

  17. Charles Crawford

  18. An Englishman's Castle

  19. Frank Davis

  20. Oxford Libertarian Society

What, no Counting Cats?

UPDATE by DK: as is traditional, I would like to thank all of the readers and commenters at The Kitchen; I would also like to thank my colleagues and contributors—as well as those who voted for us.

Sadly, no. I don't think we were even on the ballot.

Maybe next year.

O/T, but maybe of interest:

SASKATOON — The incoming president of the Canadian Medical Association says this country's health-care system is sick and doctors need to develop a plan to cure it.

You are listed, Cats, but as 'Right Wing':

If you feel that doesn't reflect your stance, you can just drop them a line and they'll change it for you.

I wouldn't hold your breath CountingCats; I'm still listed as a Tory and despite several requests they still haven't changed me to Libertarian. I don't know, maybe it is because I have such an ambiguous username. Still, I messaged them again earlier today, so you never know, it might happen one day soon.

Julia, yeah, I know. I went and had a look earlier.

What about Guido though? He has never struck me as a libertarian, just as a highly capable and successful political s**t stirrer.

Right wing? That doesn't seem right. We're radicals, gosh darn it!

Counting Cats - Dale had me as right wing attack blog ?!?! He changed it for me a few months ago within 5 mins of asking so worth trying again.
