Britblog Roundup # 60
Yes, here it is, the sesquidecadal (sexidecadal? sesquidecal? Never was much good at posh language) version of the Britblog Roundup. Your selection of the posts that caught your eye, the ones you think that we should all take note of. You can make your entries by emailing the URL to britblog AT gmail DOT com.
First up is Cicero’s Songs. I’m not all that sure about his comments on the PM not being able to be a Catholic (the Lord Chancellor and marrying into the Royal Family, yes, but not sure about the PM) but as an overview of the Blair years it’s tough to beat.
Stephen Tall posts a letter from New York. Why the huge divide in political matters between the US and Europe?
A Very British Dude has some (very good) questions for David Cameron. In short, grow a pair.
The DK also has a message for Cameron (obscenity alert!). Should be required reading for the Moonies at HQ.
Blognor Regis is reporting great success in training cats.
For something completely and totally different in blogging try Bloggggomania. You’ll need to scroll around a bit to get the full flavour. Same school as me, same City, very different life.
Postman Patel on the super powers of the Jewish lobby at The Daily Telegraph.
Clive Davis (another Bathonian....showing my home team prejudices here.) goes to The Orwells. Name dropping amongst the literatti, dontcha’ know.
Bristling Badger on the subject of carbon offsets. Interesting to find someone even more environmentally radical than The Independent.
Liberal England continues the badger theme with his all LibDem all the time news.
The Filter makes an important point about economics. Being pro-free market is not, in any way whatsoever, the same as being right-wing.
Adloyada fact checks Alan Johnson at the BBC. Not pretty, not pretty at all.
Shocker of a story, a must read. No, no details, just read.
Another medical blogger, Diagnosis, NFI. A broken hip and not going to hospital for months. Read on to find out why.
Cruella-Blog on the incompatibility of feminism and certain religions.
Mind The Gap comes perilously close to advocating censorship.
Sunny at Pickled Politics on the environment and its problems.
On a cheerier note, the blossoms in Provence in springtime.
English Cut (if you’ve not read it before, fascinating insight into Savile Row tailoring) on a new overcoat. Just as it’s always the cobblers children who are unshod:
[Typical- the tailors always gets his own clothes out of season].
Huw visits the DEFRA labs. Good little piece of reporting that, you can imagine it in many a newspaper.
One More Cup of Coffee on the joys of a barman’s life.
The Horny Toad has the solution to ID Cards. Get yours right now! No waiting!
Non-Trivial Solutions takes on Alice Miles. This is rather the full-strength, line by line, Fisk. Ms. Miles does not win.
Something of a chilling little post. How much you’re going to get fined for not keeping your ID Card details up to date. Lots. And lots.
SuzBlog stalks Tessa Jowell and David Mills. You should be taking photos for Guido.
And that’s it, the Britblog for this week! Just a short note, this blog turns 2 on Friday so, if we don’t see you before then remember, we are just entering the Terrible Twos! More anger, more vituperation. Maybe.

Well, discussing issues of censorship is always perilous.
