It’s official! We’re the 28th worst political blog!

Reblogged from A Very Public Sociologist:

First embarrassment.

It’s the list no one has been waiting for. And, sadly, it’s proven to be something of a damp squib. Cast your mind back to last month when this blog excitedly solicited votes for the 2013 poll of the UK’s worst political blogs. Unfortunately, the votes didn’t pile in and the mini-viral from last time I tried this didn’t take off. I have some super serious theories why, but that can wait for a proper blog about blogging.

And so, of necessity, this is the top 50 (plus one) worst blogs in reverse order as voted by the internets. Feel free to compare them with 2010’s results.

Second embarrassment. It’s this:

That’s right, a blog I’m a regular contributor at has toppled Guido and assumed the cacky crown itself.

Interestingly those voting for Socialist Unity overwhelmingly hailed from the left. Fratricide does it again!

    Sorry to stray off topic but it is warming up on the Stephen Sizer front

    Corrupt electoral malpractice. We demand a secret ballot.

    10-15 is a good run (especially 11 and 12 together) – utterly unlike each other but all different flavours of hideousness.

    And do please shut up “richardarmbach”: you’re such a loon, and so irrelevant to the people the Left are supposed to be fighting for, that you almost make numbers 10 and 11 in the list look sane.

    You wish

    I suppose I should be happy that ACA The Underground isn’t even on the list! lol :)
