Britblog Roundup #93
Yes, it is indeed that time of the week again when we showcase your selections of the best of the blogging output of these isles.
You can make nominations for next week's simply by emailing the URL to britblog At gmail DOT com. Any subject, any viewpoint, just must be from a resident or native of our four countries.
First up has to be Nosemonkey's masterly condemnation of Balir's inane misaunderstanding of the social contract. Quite excellent and needs to be read in full.
Chris Dolley with meal time ettiquette for kittens. Mine simply bites until fed.
Francis has done some of the heavy calculating on working out how much a citizen's basic income would cost. Looks possible, certainly.
Tom Griffin has joined in the Number 10 petition deluge: the Prime Minister should reject the proposed changes to the Freedom of Information Act.
Mr. Dodge on hypocrisy and idiocy in pop bands.
Frog End with a delightful little piece of whimsy. Being pointed to sites like this is the reason I'm cobbling this list together again for the 93 rd time.
Prague Tory does a lot more work than I would have done to see quite how far the ripples spread when a meme is dropped into the blog pool.
Not Saussure: it's all in the title.
Philobiblon hosts the Carnival of Bad History. BTW, I think we'd all really rather like to see that piece on the 100 year old stuffed armadillo as well.
Lady Bracknell collects her MBE. M'Lady has done the British millinery industry proud.
Jim Jay has created his list of the top 100 green bloggers. Quite remarkably (as I have already remarked) I'm not on it. Don't I write enough about matters environmental?
Antonia Bance on teenage contraception services in Oxford.
The Yank Abroad tries to put some perspective on the death rate in Iraq. Stirring subject for only his second post.
The Purple Pen on yet another piece of insane 'elf n' safety idiocy. A child breaks an arm on a cross country run and the school isn't allowed to either offer pain relief or take her to hospital. This is in loco parentis?
drove to pick her up from the school hosting the competition, which took 45 minutes, arriving over an hour after the accident, to discover that they had not yet given her any pain relief. "It's political correctness gone mad", said the A & E doctor. It's sheer over-regulated stupidity and lack of common sense, I say.
Can we hang the bastard who thought this up please?
Living for Disco is still out in the wilds of Namibia. This week, what it's like to only have seasonal fruit available.
Norm reports from The Gabba. Apparently there's some strange exotic ritual going on there at present.
The Magistrate on why you should never accept a police caution. Always insit upon being charged and then see what happens.
Here's a bit of a shocker from the Neurophilosopher. It's complex, but could Alzheimer's actually be infectious?
SuzBlog on an intreresting difference between private and public development works. Arsenal's new ground is already holding weddings while Wembley is .....
Liberal Review has a right proper look at the failure of the new system for payments to farmers.
Never Knowingly Underwhelmed on Michael Richards' racist tirade. If you haven't seen them yet he's got the video of both the outburst and the apology.
And that's it for this week, more next and until then:

Thanks for this. Nice to make your acquaintance.

I've added a part 2 to my citizen's basic income post - calculating the entire UK budget including the CBI and removing rather a lot of deadwood.

I'm afraid Tim that I didn't keep a copy of the armadillo piece, which appeared in the South Weekly Magazine (base Wagga Wagga, circulation about 70,000 as I recall). There may be one in an archive somewhere, but I kind of hope not...
