Total Politics Top Green Blogs

The votes are counted, crunched and spat out again at an alarmed public. Total Politics have announced the top twenty five Green Party blogs. I'd like to thank everyone who voted for The Daily (Maybe) making a very welcome hat-trick, winning top place three years in a row.

You're all very lovely and you shall get your reward in heaven, or some other suitably ethereal location. Well done to those who made the top ten, which looks like this;

1 (1) The Daily (Maybe)
2 Bright Green Scotland
3 (2) Two Doctors
4 (5) Barkingside 21
5 (4) Another Green World
6 Gaian Economics
7 (21) George Monbiot
8 (8) Rupert's Read
9 (11) Mabinogogiblog
10 (9) Ruscombe Green

Congratulations particularly go to Bright Green Scotland who've leaped straight in at number two, making two of the top three based on the chilly side of Hadrian's Wall. I also note that two of the top 25 are recent defectors from the Lib Dems (the excellent Jane's Political Ramblings and A Week Is a Long Time) showing you don't have to have been a member for years to make a valuable contribution.

Obviously this is all a bit of fun and games rather than anything too substantial. Politics is a team effort, not a competition, and that also goes for political blogging. Well done to everyone who is part of the right-on blogosphere, whether or not you're on this list or any other. Still, thanks again, it's nice to know people appreciate you.

Well done Jim and everybody peeps.
Nice to see Molly up there after her misadventure last year.

Number eleven: which is odd as it's not even.
