Britblog Roundup #86

Welcome once again to our little collection of those posts you nominate. The idea is to try and pool our reading, to swap those bits and bobs that we should have seen but quite possibly didn't. You can amke nominations for next week by simply emailing the URL to britblog AT gmail DOT com. Any subject, any viewpoint, just the good stuff that we should see.

First up should be Dr. Rant. More news on what's going on with our money in the NHS.

You might enjoy (warning, naughty bits) this You Tube video. Fascinating lyrics to that blues song. (Yes, he is a blogger too. Not saying which one though.)

On the subject of video blogging Stephen Tall has a go at Cameronblogging as does Will Howells.

Peter Black AM on a striptease that took place at the Royal Welsh. Worth noting that no sheep were harmed in the creation of this post.

Anthony at The Filter finds a gloriously grumpy middle age creeping up on him.

Philobiblon on the Greenham Common Peace Camp and related matters. Attending Green Party conferences can do that to you apparently.

My London Your London reviews Shortcuts. Yes, you want to get your tickets before the run closes on the 21st.

Mind The Gap Cardiff takes issue with Jamie Oliver dessing up in a fat suit.

But of course Jamie Oliver isn’t actually a poor fat person. He’s a very rich thin person in a fat suit. How dare somebody so privileged dress up and stigmatise fat people as the abject other with whom “we,” who are not yet obese, must not identify? How do you think this material will make young people identified as fat feel? What effect do images like this have on people’s attitudes towards those already perceived and stigmatised as fat?

Pandemian has been called up for jury service. 10 immediate thoughts posted.

Stroppyblog on the upcoming World Mental Health Day and as NHS Blog Doctor has been known to say, something we all need to be rather more aware of. Mental illness is no where near as rare as people think.

Cruellablog on prostitution and the new campaign to get the johns to report those they might think have been trafficked.

Lady Bracknell finds that a house without a cat just isn't a home.

Nee Naw with the 10 Commandments for dialling 999. Yes, there will be a test by a stern patriarch in a white beard later.

Other Men's Flowers on three things to believe before breakfast. Two aren't true and the other, well...

Suzblog is 5 days fag free. Hypnotherapy is working for her at least.

Chris Dolley goes actor spotting. Get good at it and you'll always be able to spot the baddie.

The Welsh Exile would like some help in googlebombing a bunch of lying bastards.

An extraordinarily accurate post on the difference between lefties and righties at The Sharpener.

Nick Barlow's walk from John O'Groats to Land's End should have finished yesterday. He might post here, put photos here. Yup, 74 days and 1050 miles. And, yes, you can make donations here. Go on you tight fisted gits! Pay Up!

Jarndyce starts the abortion subject rolling again. This time, by providing an overview of the arguments, he shows why no politicians want to touch the subject with the proverbial bargepole.

Elemental with an ouline of why he blogs and a very useful little list of tools and resources.

John Ray has a new blog looking at us oddities, the Brits.

Judy at Adloyada with news of an excellent BBC radio program on Hungary in 1956.

Devil's Kitchen has the inaugural EUSceptic Roundup.

And that's it for this week folks, reember to note down the good reading next week and send it in to us, until then:

Toodle Pip!

... except that post on the Sharpener is widely ridiculed in the comments, as well it should be :)
