I haven't formally updated my Blogroll for quite a long time, but I have in fact been adding new blogs to those I read regularly in my blog aggregator and a few of these have already crept in unannounced into the blogroll. Many others haven't - although they undoubtedly merit a place there too. Well, it's time to put that right. Similarly I conduct regular pruning of the blogroll, one of the basic criteria for which is non-activity for three months.
asterism - sophisticated and balanced commentary by an Iraqi who has spent most of his life in London.
BellgroveBelle - a recently-elected SNP Councillor; let's see how she performs for real.
come back to what you know - A young gay blogger; he writes on an eclectic range of topics and he writes well.
Come into my World - fluffy, amusing and with lots of nice pictures of good-looking totty; nothing too naughty, though.
ConservativeHome.com - whilst an indispensible resource for those interested in developments within the Conservative Party, it can be a haven of extremely reactionary viewpoints.
doctorvee (Duncan Stephen) - a young Scottish blogger and a long overdue addition to my blogroll.
Ewan's blog (Ewan Watt) - a newish blog which generally makes sense.
Fisking Central - on a mission to puncture balloons.
Green Ribbon, The - news, opinion and analysis from London Irish journalist Tom Griffin; brings another perspective to British politics.
High Maintenance Hags - amusingly describes his blog as "My wonderful harem of fag hags. I love them all, but I don't put up with any of their female tomfoolery." A familiar dilemma for gay men!
Holyrood Chronicles - a refreshing look at the Scottish Parliament and Executive.
Ian Hamilton QC - the blog of a Scottish nationalist and a QC. Infuriating, but very interesting; well-written goes without saying.
Inveresk Street Ingrate - the gentle delusions of a member of the Socialist Party of Great Britain living in New York; I read this to remind my why I'm not a socialist, but don't let that put you off.
Life in London Town - life in London as seen by a cute (his description) young and affluent Asian gay guy.
Longrider - libertarian blogging goodness. Quirky.
MacNumpty, J. Arthur (Will Patterson) - refreshing commentary on Scottish politics.
Martin Kelly - thoughts from the west of Scotland; and what thoughts they are! Nuf sed.
Reactionary Snob - trenchant commentary from a libertarian Edinburgh advocate.
NHS Blog Doctor - a candid commentary on healthcare issues in Britain.
NO2ID - the blog of the campaign against ID cards and the database state.
not the record - lively 'rants' on Glaswegian and Scottish politics.
Obsolete - that strange thing, leftist commentary that's actually worth reading.
Phew! I'll try to do this a little more frequently from now on.
