Could it be because Guido is talking up Miliband's prospects?


Are you putting your hat in the ring for Labour's most humourless control freak?

Praguetory - oh look here come the tory trolls with their rapier wit and repartee


The reason is that Miliband's blog is hosted on a government website. Because of that, he's attempted to provide a balanced set of links. If he wants to make party political points or have a party political blogroll, he should set up a private blog.

Essex Boy

leaving a mere 3 links to Labour supporting sites.

Perhaps Rats, Ships and Sinking come to mind.

Henry Whitmarsh

Surely the question is why the taxpayer is funding Miliband's blog at all. If they weren't he could choose his own links.

Since this alleged blog of Miliband's is paid for by the taxpayers (not the Labour Party), I'd have thought a distribution of links to political blogs in line with The Guardian ICM poll today would be reasonable - and would give the Left erm.. 2.5 out of eight (31%).

Move along now, no scandal to see here...


If you knew about blogging then you'd realise that people put links to blogs they think are interesting. They don't necessarily agree with them, but they probably read them occasionally. Look at Iain Dale's which you clearly have read) he has a list of Labour blogs, as well as blogs by Labour MPs and peers, despite the lower presence of the left in general in political blogs in the UK.

So why do you think Milliband has no link here?

Reagan Fan

You lot are priceless, Iain accuses you of behaving like children so, you spit the dummy again! LOL! Carry on...


You'd be disappointed if I didn't turn up. News in brief - "Labour blogger attacks Tory trolls who attack the said Labour blogger for attacking another Labour blogger who links to Tory bloggers who attack Labour blogs"

About this Blog

  • From the folks who brought you the weekend, a sometimes happy human blogging from the left of centre and keeping it sceptical, freethinking, secular and humanist. Because every reasonable human being should be a moderate socialist – or drinker – or preferably both. “It is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan.

About Labour

  • ‘The Labour Party is a democratic socialist party. It believes that by the strength of our common endeavour we achieve more than we achieve alone, so as to create for each of us the means to realise our true potential and for all of us a community in which power, wealth and opportunity are in the hands of the many, not the few. Where the rights we enjoy reflect the duties we owe. And where we live together, freely, in a spirit of solidarity, tolerance and respect.’

The Labour Humanist Group

  • A Labour Humanist Group exists to spread awareness of humanism and humanists within the Labour Party and to promote humanist and Labour values.

What is Humanism

  • Humanism is the belief that we can live good lives without religious or superstitious beliefs. Humanists make sense of the world using reason, experience and shared human values. We seek to make the best of the one life we have by creating meaning and purpose for ourselves. We take responsibility for our actions and work with others for the common good.
