Iain Dale's Top Blog List - Can I rise from 58th?

This time 11 months ago I was sat in a hotel in Twenty Nine Palms, California, when I logged onto my blog and discovered that Iain Dale had decided that I was the 58th best Lib Dem blogger in the country. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

But, the good (or horrific) news, is that he is doing it again this year, and is asking blog readers the world over to nominate their top political blogs. He'll compile the little lists into one big list. So, can I make the top 50 this year? That's the question on everybody's lips... Mr Dale is asking for you to nominate between 10 and 20 of your top policitcal blogs, and is offering £100 of politics DVDs to one lucky participant as an incentive.

This blog is about as politically sophisticated as a Grunting Contest Sponsored by The Mike Tyson Hot Dog Corporation, but to be honest there isn't that much to write about being a backbench opposition Councillor, and I have managed more or less a post a day on average. So I think I deserve points for trying, if nothing else. I aid this would be about the ward, the Lib Dems, Bury Council and me. And that's what it is about. It isn't John Stuart Mill, and it dsoesn't set Fleet Street a-flutter, but if you want to know about Prestwich Village and what I think about it, then you'll get it here.

If you feel that Rick's St Mary's Diary is worthy of some points in the big competition, take a look at Iain Dale's post here or email him at

And let's see if we can make the big leagues this year, eh?
