Britblog Roundup # 74

Yes! It’sthe Britblog Roundup in it’s shrunken summer form, all svelte and ready for that bikini on the beach. Clearly people are on their hols rather than reading blogs and recommending things to us: you can change that by sending the URL of your nominations for next week’s to britblog AT gmail DOT com.

Those posts we haven’t but ought to see.

First up an interesting piece from an American blog dealing with the NatWest 3 and extradition. I think there’s a slight bit of point missing there though: the objection isn’t to trial so much as extradition without the presentation of prima facie evidence.

More on this subject from Lex who’s more thinking about why the furore over businessmen?

The Sharpener with a very good argument as to why many more British businessmen are likely to follow them over the pond.

Save the Ribble continues to give lessons in how to use blogs to campaign.

Matthew continues his increasingly surreal journey into the alphabet. I’m not entirely sure there’s enough acid out there to get him all the way to Z but we can but hope.

Mr. Dodge on the political lessons of England’s exit from the World Cup.

Unity at The Ministry of Truth in full spate. Do make sure you read the last part, about ASBOs. That case needs to be shouted from the rooftops: preferably the one that the originator of such an affront to justice is hanging from.

Jarndyce on Zizou and how the reaction to the affair is yet another part in the story of the decline of the left.

Ken Owen has a well deserved dig at Martin Jacques. Apprently the ex-Trot thinks the World Cup is all about racism and oppression.

Liberal England connects Sean Woodward and spanking.

The moral is that while it is good for an MP to have a website and to use it to encourage debate, he really ought to read it occasionally.

Suzblog goes gardening.

Natalie Bennett (who is now something important at Teh Grauniad: who says bloggers can’t move down in the world?) reviews Spring Awakening and thinks it may well be the best thing on the Fringe.

Edward at the LSE does the Dunwich Dynamo. A 120 mile bike ride overnight. Ouch.

Apparently Superman is not univerally adored, he might, even, be a reactionary fu..

A review of Muhajababes: yes,those in the Middle East are indeed people just like us.

The modern world is solved. All of it. Making it Up has the details.

Tom Reynolds with a nice piece on armed police: we only hear about it when things go wrong, not when they go right.

Further rumblings on the Larry Summers point, why are there so few women in the upper echelons of science at  the Capacious Handbag.

The Inkycircus has good news on the HIV treatment fropnt. Big Pharma actually working together for a change.

Go green: get your milk from your milkman. Unless it’s organic, which you should get from the shop. Or something.

Adloyada on the different ways in which the BBC will report very much the same type of actions.

Natalie Solent is angry and I like angry. Do check out her post at Biased BBC.

Guido wishes to point out that he is now getting more hits than Comment is Free.

And that’s it for this week, back next week, same place, Sunday arvo, until then:

Toodle Pip!
