Six of the Best 62

The Futility Monster looks forward to the next London Mayoral election: "This time, the Liberal Democrats will probably battle it out between non-entities on the London Assembly, or other London Lib Dems no one’s ever heard of. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

A message of support has been sent to the first ever international congress on the human rights of transgender people by equalities minister Lynne Featherstone.

One of my favourite cities is Inverness, which is unique in having a fast-flowing, shallow river running through its centre. So I share the fury of Caron's Musings that it has been nominated for a Carbuncle Award.

Another favourite place of mine is Lewes. Grahamblanca's Blog offers a clear-eyed account of its best and worst features.
