Thogger AwardIt seems that I have been nominated as a Thinking Blogger (or Thogger) by Dizzy and The Insomniac. It's amusing that this meme, which should so appeal to our vanity, has spread so quickly, is it not? But, as it so obviously does flatter, your humble Devil like to thank Lucifer, Beelzebub and the Morning Star; if I wasn't so modest, I'd be perfect!

Anyway, I'm sure that you will have seen the rules, but they run as follows:
The participation rules are simple:
  1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,

  2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,

  3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote

Well, that all seems very easy, and with no more ado I shall nominate the following five bloggers:
  1. Mr Eugenides
    Everytime that I think that I may have plumbed the depths of depravity and can sink no lower, the swearblogging poor, little Greek boy rarely fails to show me that I have done no such thing.

  2. Dr Crippen
    I have read the good doctor almost from the day that he started; his front-line blogging is consistently, sometimes tragically, informative and entertaining. The only man who may hate Patsy Hewitt more than me or Mr E...

  3. ChickenYoghurt
    There are times when I want to wring this little chicken's neck (such is the level of political discussion here in DK Hell) but as the first blogger ever to link to me and also as one of the most eloquent and amusing of my regular reads, I've let him off. So far...

  4. Ministry Of Truth
    Another fucking Lefty but, let's face it, it is the Lefties that generally make me think and question my own rectitude. I'm still right, but if I were to be wrong, Unity would catalogue it at exhaustive length and with links to every devastatingly damning document.

  5. Not Proud Of Britain (But Would Like To Be)
    One of the unsung heroes of the British political blogosphere, Snafu writes posts that are always concise but often draw unlikely connections.

Of course, if he hadn't already been nominated, I would have chosen Timmy; it's a predictable choice but how could I possibly ignore the man who first switched me on to the glories of economic theory and helped your humble Devil to articulate his beliefs, way back in early 2005 (well, it seems a long time to me!)?

Right, enough! It's time to eviscerate some deserving bastard...

This was originated from

Perhaps you should give her credit.

Erm... I have linked directly to her blog as requested. What more credit do you think I should give?

And why the hell should I give "credit" to someone who invents yet another meme to bother me with and generally piss me off?

I see the Government is now funding the unemployed to start up their own blogs.

Wish I could sit around all day fiddling with my laptop while claiming benefits and council tax.

Nah I have to work a 70 week to even scrape a living.


Oh yeah? So what has happened for the last ten years, exactly?

Over at the ASI, they are posting some of the winning entries of the Young Writers on Liberty. One does not want to put such keen minds off,...
