Why isn't Samizdata on the list or in the directory? It's one of the best blogs full stop and certainly qualifies for the libertarian top 20.

Anonymous, thanks for pointing that out. I had wrongly classified it under right wing, rather than libertearian. I have now corrected the error.

I'm posting this here in the hope that someone will pay attention because I've already emailed your editor who did precisely nothing about it. Please take my blog out of your index. Or if you insist on retaining it, at least file it under the right goddam country because I am not English. You don't have to be a nationalist to find this sort of thing annoying. Thanks.


Iain Dale said...

If you told me which country I'd happily reclassify you. I have looked at your blog and it is impossible to tell.

Shuggy said...

There's the odd mention of Glasgow. This is in Scotland - a small province in the north of Britain.

Tristan said...

Are the directories exclusive?

I ask because there are several libertarian LibDems who blog, but they don't get included in the Libertarian list.

The same appears to go for Libertarian Tories.

Iain Dale said...

They will be in the LibDem and Tory lists, no doubt.

Goodness, don't they all complain!
