Around the blogs: Cultured Liberal Democrats

Like everyone else, I have been out delivering. But even at this time of year life is not all Focus leaflets and letterboxes for Liberal Democrats, as a journey round our blogs shows.

Jonathan Fryer writes about T. E. Lawrence. Cicero writes about Bruce Chatwin (who would have liked to have been Lawrence). Clowns to the Left of Me has been to the National Theatre.

Most impressively of all, Eric Avebury points us to the Edward II blog. This does what is says on the tin, and examines the events, issues and personalities of that monarch's reign. As every schoolboy used to know, it lasted from 1307 to 1327.

It is the only blog I have seen that invites you to vote for your favourite and least favourite Medieval kings.

I feel that websites that allow people to rate monarchs should be banned. It is blatantly a form of bullying public servants who do an honest days work for the good of society.

Or is that teachers?
