And the winner is...


Well, well. Constantly Furious is highly flattered to have been placed in the list of the top 20 libertarian blogs in the Total Politics poll.

Extra pleasing, as this ranking is based on real votes, from real people, rather than complex reverse triple back-linking algorithms or such nonsense.

Very many thanks to all who voted for CF.

The only teensy fly in the ointment was that naughty Iain Dale claimed to be 'too busy' to put actual links into the blog post announcing the winners [**UPDATE** : now he has]. As Tom Paine, another winner, pointed out in the comments:


"The one day of the year when we struggling libertarians could have had a link direct from Britain's top blogger, and you had to put in an interrupt, rather than link from our names. Pshaw, Iain!"


Too true. Most bloggers dream of a link from Ma Dale.

By way of correcting this oversight, here are the top 20, this time with links:

  1. Guido Fawkes
  2. Devil's Kitchen (** has posted this list **)
  3. Old Holborn (** has posted this list **)
  4. Obnoxio the Clown (** has posted this list **)
  5. Underdogs Bite Upwards (** has posted this list **)
  6. Tim Worstall
  7. Samizdata
  8. Boatang & Demetriou (** has posted this list **)
  9. Dick Puddlecote (** has posted this list **)
  10. LPUK Blog
  11. Last Ditch (** has posted this list **)
  12. Constantly Furious
  13. Anna Raccoon
  14. Freedom to Choose (** has posted this list **)
  15. Rantin' Rab (** has posted this list **)
  16. Plato Says
  17. Charles Crawford (** has posted this list **)
  18. An Englishman's Castle
  19. Frank Davis (** has posted this list **)
  20. Oxford Libertarian Society (** has posted this list **)

Big shout out to the the other 19. Mutual backslap, dudes! Why not publish this, or similar, on your blog, and we can all share a little link lurve. It won't be as good as a 'Dale' link, but better than nowt, eh?

Onward and upward!


UPDATE: Good chap, that Iain Dale: he's updated his blogpost, with the links this time. Cheers, m'dear!

Nice idea, CF.

Hold down an app for a second, and start turning off all the apps that you aren't using by pressing the "minus" button. The Lenmar 1530 m - Ah for the Amazon Kindle 1 e-reader is the first choice for consumers. Double Tap (Tap the home button twice > Press down on an app for one second > Hit the "minus" button on all apps that are running) When you open an app, it stays running until you actually turn it off.

Meanwhile, her late mother was a former chairman of the Oklahoma University Foundation as well as one of the first members of the state's ethics commission. It does not have the capacity or ability at that time to see, that how it is being treated is a reflection of how the individuals in the family treat themselves.

analyze how you interact in relationships and determine if
your actions are analogous to your parent's relationship.
