6th Best Scottish Political Blog (apparently)

I have guests staying at the moment and no time to give my blog the measured attention that it needs/ deserves. I particularly want to write a bit about the release of the Lockerbie bomber and the reaction, but that will take a good while given the nature of the post and trying to construct my thoughts in an articulate manner.

In the meantime, I want to thank those of you who voted for Malc in the Burgh as one of the Top 50 Scottish Blogs. I made it in at number 28 last year and have risen up the rankings to sixth this year - a hefty rise and one I'm quite proud of. If you were one of the 1500 people who voted in the poll (and particularly, if you were one of those who voted for me) thanks very much!

Well done to all of those who found a place in the Top 50, particularly those whom I read almost daily and those whom I voted for myself. Hoping to see many of those illustrious Scottish bloggers represented in the Top 200 UK list when it is published later this month.

You should be at least a top 7 Non Aligned Blog if only Iain Dale had got his designations right.

Well done and all that but if you want to maintain your position surely you should be coming off the fence on the biggest political question of the day... ???

I'm quite happy - indeed, eager - to engage in debate with others when the topic provides opportunity to do so. I like knowing who I'm debating with and I'm fed up with some abusive anonymous comments so I've disabled those comments for awhile. If you want to comment, log in - it only takes a minute.
