And another accolade!


Following on from the Sunrise’s appearance in Mick Fealty’s top twenty of Irish blogs, management is hugely pleased, and slightly astonished, to note that Andy has given us the number two spot in his list of the top left blogs in the Celtic Isles and England. With a much deserved number one spot to Cedar Lounge.

Like many Socialist Unity readers, I’ll be checking out the listed blogs I’m not familiar with and will probably mine the comprehensive list shamelessly for links. And a quick shout out to Bob from Brockley, who has one of the most irresistible blog titles I’ve seen. I’m sorry that Bob doesn’t like my snide attacks on the Decent Left, but I hope he sticks around as he’ll find snide attacks on lots of people. Our offensiveness at least endeavours to follow strict equal opportunities guidelines, although I wouldn’t put much money on this blog surviving a Section 75 audit.

    I am surprised that absolutely no one from Britain commented on me giving Cedar lounge my top vote.

    I meant to say something about it in my comment bigging up SS, but I forgot. But I have to admit I’ve more or less stopped reading CLR – it’s good, but I think it’s designed mainly for people who know something about Irish politics. (And I do mean ‘something’. All I know about Fianna Fail is that they’re not Fine Gael…)

    Yes, I’ll stick around.

    I like the Bernard Manning equal opportunities approach (although I think you’re maybe not quite so expansive in your offensiveness as him).

    Ah, Phil. We’ll have to do something about that… 🙂
