Wikio Top Political Blogs March 2011

His Grace has kindly been sent the preview of Wikio's February figures (which they call March). His Grace is, of course, excluded from the Religion category (where he used to rank No1) by virtue of his appearing in the Politics category, where he presently ranks No14, which, considering the fierce competition, isn't bad at all.

1Liberal Conspiracy
2Left Foot Forward
3Guy Fawkes' blog
4Labourlist
5Labour Uncut
6Liberal Democrat Voice
7ConservativeHome's ToryDiary
8Iain Dale's Diary
9ConservativeHome's YourPlatform
10Political Scrapbook
11Next Left
12Politics: Politics blog | guardian.co.uk
13Benedict Brogan
14Archbishop Cranmer
15Harry's Place
16Westminster Blog
17Anna Raccoon
18John Rentoul
19Tim Worstall

Interesting a lot more lefties I think in the top 20 now than there were a year or two ago. In fact since Dale has almost stopped, Guido is a Libertarian and ConHome more like an MSM outfit, I think your Grace can lay claim to being the most prominent independent Conservative blogger! I know pride is a sin but proper recognition of when one does a task well is not. Congratulations.

As LDS says, there are more 'lefties' knocking around now. It's a bit like 'Spitting Image' et al; where were they during the Blair-Brown years???

Considering the bollox spouted by some of the competition, I am surprised that Your Grace is not featured higher.

Taking a dekko at the other blogs shows MrJ that the average quality of those listed 1-14 would drop considerably if Cranmer's were absent, usefully informative though some of them are. (But then MrJ is a regular Spectator CH watcher.)

I agree with LDS, there seems to be much more "lefty blogs" in the top 10, 70% if you discount Iain Dale. Also where are the Telegraph blogs or Douglas Carswell?

Why on earth are people still going to Dale's place? What's the point of that?

Iain Dale's doing pretty well for someone who's stopped blogging!

Very well done Your Grace. At least you are in the frame which is more than can be said for most of us.

Fierce competition ! My current view is one of very underhand competition . Whilst poltics is often fluid when important questions become offence and decline to be answered by those who are your direct representative , the poverty of the situation should not be let slip .

well done your grace all the same , blogging often poses certain questions to suite , and it is with a good degree of confidence that your blogg continues to choose more thoughtful subjects to your world wide auidence . God and mamon is never easy.

Is it just thinking that it's fixed? There's no way that those Lefty blogs should be there in the top 6.

Is the poll now run by the BBC/Guardian?

I have stayed up to watch the Barnsely bye election Mr Jarvis seems a decent man although despite the sinscerity I balked at his speech , did Mrs Thatcher really do so much harm ? , lib dem vote is astonishing .
QT was interesting in David Starkys comment , how much animosity would have been saved if the gay rights had chosen his path instead of the show trials and liberal tryanny .
The libya question got good airing . I am surprised at backlash on David Cameron as it is pretty clear the night holds new terrors in Tripoli , despite the PR , I understand the difficulties and the need for the Arab contries to decide there course in the more grown up nations that some of them now accept is the modern world .

It is agonising knowing he will not let his people be free of him and his regieme without arab bloodshed , in that sense David Camerons instincts were right .it is the instincts of the arab world that will dictate if a better world is needed where the funding of terrorism is checked , now they must share the burden of removing what is no good , or see libya have a bloody war and loss of life if he isnt removed.

I'm not sure how Illiberal Conspiracy managed to get voted No ! political blog. Vote early vote often probably. Harry's place is a far better lefty blog.

Well done Your Grace! Now you have come into prominence, I trust you will manage to avoid a bonfire this time round.

Good showing, Your Grace. I suspect creative voting is responsible for some of the surprise placings.

Congratulations, Your Grace. Well deserved. Wider still and wider, shall thy bounds be set.

It's interesting you should point to the appalling record of the last Labour government. Of course, the last Tory government was thrown out on account of its appalling record, and so was the Labour government that preceded it. I wonder how far back this goes?

One might be driven to suspect our politics was broken!

The inability to post real-time comments is killing ConHome.
