A 'Blogging Award' from the mother of the Valleys

Since being nominated as an 'Excellent' political blog by the equally excellent Valleys Mam, I now have to nominate five political blogs and five non-political to pass it on to.

I've decided not to replicate any blogs [excellent though they are] that have already been chosen by others, but have no idea how many have been tagged into this. My political choices are not based on 'politics'. Instead I have based my choice* on what they offer - concentrating on my Welsh Political Blogroll - as my full blogroll reflects my true eclectic choice.

Political Blogs (alphabetical order):

  1. Bethan Jenkins AM (Plaid Cymru)
  2. Glyn Davies (Conservative)
  3. Normal Mouth (Labour)
  4. Peter Black AM (Liberal Democrat)
  5. Vaughan Roderick (Media)

Non-Political Blogs (alphabetical order):

  1. Chris Cope
  2. Ellee Seymour
  3. Petite Anglaise
  4. Skidmore's Island
  5. The Last of the Few (18+)

* Please note that this list is probably biased and based on those that I have recently discovered or read on a daily basis.

Update: As I've been asked again about my political choice - I read each one for different reasons and they provide me with a wide range of thought. My actual list would be much bigger and include blogs that are just as good as those selected or better.

Thought I'd clear that one up :)

I'm not much of a fan of Bethan Jenkins' blog... I find it rather lame that she deletes comments that she doesn't like. Not really the mature politician.

I like it in the sense that she has the stomach to talk about her politics, though it is different from my own.

Her politics are different to my own too.
I am not a student, you see.

I did allow anon comments for ages actually but I have removed them now as they were proving to be adding nothing to the political debate, but everything in terms of attacking me personally.

I'm glad that you read my blog pippa! I am not as regular now as I have been, but the excuse being that I have been quite ill over the last week....!

I am not a student either anon. Brand me with that one again. yawn.

I feel humbled and honoured.

Exactly. We might clash a bit, but bethan speaks her mind and offers a view, unlike many of our AM who do sweet FA for their fat salaries.

Anon
Have you found a politician who doesn't censor posts to their blog?
Or doesn't delete ones they do not like?
