Liberal England recommended by the Independent

Thanks to Nick Barlow for alerting me to the fact that this blog is mentioned in the general election guide published with today's Independent. I rushed out to buy one happened to be passing a newsagent's who had a copy.

Liberal England is one of four "Centrist" blogs listed, along with LibDemBlogs (which is an aggregator, not a blog), Liberal Democrat Voice and Nick's own What You Can Get Away With.

I take their choice as a sign of sound judgement, but Nick has looked a little deeper and suggests that it may be based on scant or out-of-date research. Can't see it myself.

Incidentally, I am not sure I like being called a centrist. Richard Rorty used to call himself a "postmodern bourgeois radical" and I rather like that. Perhaps I should add "with anarcho-nostalgic tendencies" though.

Surprising omissions were Paul Flynn's blog, one of the first political blogs and refreshingly non-centrally-programmed, and peterblack.blogspot.com.
