Britblog Roundup #96

Yes indeedy, here it is, the last of our Lisbon based Britblog Roundups. You will be able to feel the warmer electrons next week as it comes to you from the Algarve. If you would like to aid in hte composition of that extravaganza you may do so by emailing the URL of your suggeste posts to britblog AT gmail DOT com.

First up really has to be this from The Suspect Paki. Yes, news on what the NHS really is like these days.

Much more medical blogging over at the good Doctor's.

My London Your London on Women Writers at the National Portrait Gallery.

The Green Party's ideas on what to do with and about sex workers.

Further greenery: Gaian Economics, from an economics Ph.D no less.

For example, if you believe that there is no such thing as a free lunch it makes you feel like a ‘loser’ (a tremendous capitalist concept) every time you give something away, such as a lunch for your friends. Your act of generosity immediately becomes a gesture that requires reciprocation.

Err, well, yes.

How to learn to ski.

Yet even more greenery: the true state of homelessness.

(Err, yes, a regular contributor of nominations here is indeed a member of the Green Party. How did you guess?)

The Englishman illustrates modern politics with a little quotation from Aesop.

Bureaucratic determination to stop people singing carols in Parliament Square.

Blood and Treasure seems to have got the measure of Martin Kettle.

Liberal Review thinks that Duncan Smith missed a shamefully scarred group of children in our society.

Stephen Tall finds fault with the same report.

SuzBlog finds a song called Hug a Muslim. Don't you get stoned for trying that?

The Filter advocates removing teh vote from those who get their income from The State.

The public health grinch goes to the theatre.

Chris Dolley: what's worse for a Geordie, being thought a murderer or that he might be from Sunderland?

The Duck looks at broadcasting fines. It would actually have been cheaper to send every viewer one of the girls from Ipswich. Including the cab fare.

The Chicken and the Arab. No roads involved.

The worst Christmas song ever? Quite possibly, despite not being by Cliff Richard.

Charlie has Blair conjoined with MacBeth. That wood is moving, isn't it?

We have something of a problem on our hands. What will the world do when Peak Blogging arrives?

An Unreliable Witness on the Year of the Blog. Again.

Frog End has an interesting take on the modern economy.

Mr. In Dodge has a conspiracy theory he wants to share.

And that's it for this week, tune in next for the warmer, sunnier, Algarve version! Until then:

Toodle Pip!
