You'll never get ahead if you put yourself second!

Guido is boring.

Mostly.

I am not an expert. But are there many - or any - centrist/progressive Con/Cameroonian blogs on the list.

At a glance, the popular blogs poll looks dominated by the right - perhaps especially the libertarian & eurosceptic right - with Iain Dale himself (who I would gauge as being broadly supportive but some way moderately further right on policy the leadership, eg on Europe, tax, etc) being perhaps among the most centrist voices?


But would be interested to know if there are ProgCon blogs on the list I have overlooked. I didn't know Wardman Wire was right-of-centre for example, and whether anyone thinks this does reflect the shape of the broader argument about ideas within the right.


And I wonder if

Iain Dale said...

Sunder, only half the blogs on this list are Conservative blogs. You should perhaps save your in depth analysis for the Top 100 Conservative blogs, which will hopefully follow in the next couple of days.

Sunder Katwala said...

OK: Thanks. Didn't realise about the two lists. Though am hopihg someone else will do the in-depth analysis.

Iain Dale said...

I think a similar analysis could be made of the Left of Centre list versus the Labour Party list. We will see!

Surprised that Moscow Tory isn't higher up the list. Too internationalist? An excellent blog though.

I like lists upon which I appear :-)

Depressing to see that the humourless old fart little englanders at ConHome - a totty free zone - are still at No 4.

Yawn

Ta, for the list - I widened my horizons exploring them.

The word "circle-jerk" could be invented for the smug Powell and Hannan-loving Tory boys on this top ten with the possible exceptions of Guido and DK. They're just like the council estate "left-wingers" they talk about, only with more money. A pox on the lot of 'em.

It's disappointing how few women are on that list of 100
