That Guido Fawkes got such a rating doesn't say much for your readership Iain! And the more reputable ConHome isnt really a blog anymore.
That Recess won left of centre says even less for the leftwing blogosphere!
How exactly are these "awards" rather than a bloggers' survey results?

So basically any prat who puts finger to keyboard can be a top Labour or Liberal Blogger whereas on the right unless you are virtually full time you have no chance.

Explains a lot

Norfolk Blogger said...

Thank you Mr Newmania !

Andy said...

Alternatively, the right-wing blogosphere is much more comfortable looking up to authority figures? Just a thought...

Cath said...

Recess Monkey has more pics of Iain Dale than this place.

Fawkes is fake who has banned me from commenting, just because he could not get the better of me and my superior itelect. Plus he was rave organizer what a disgrace. And he is a tory stooge. Atleast you own up to what you are. He pretends to be a neutral. Cover blown.
Anyway what about worst blog of the yeart award. I am preapred to vounteer for that award. But i want other candidates.
