Well, the Total Politics votes are in, the ballots have been counted and verified and, save for one suspiciously unopened bag in Glenrothes, it’s been deemed a fair count.
And Scottish blogs have done rather well all in all, in the Scottish result (obviously) and the UK one. Labour are back in the charts (though Tom Harris has been writing his new book too much to reclaim top spot), the Tories are nowhere (hoorah!), the Lib Dems are doing
cartels cartwheels at their echo chamber results which is nice for them after such a rotten year and the Greens have a hand in the published top two slots in Scotland.
As for us… Better Nation is top Scottish blog! And a very respectable 21st in the UK, spooning John Redwood at 20th. Lovely. We are delighted so a big thanks to all who voted for us after our
pleading begging asking and also those who’ve been reading and commenting who didn’t vote. It’s been very enjoyable to see the site grow and to get top Scottish blog is a sweet way to finish the political year.
And for the coming year? More of the same hopefully, starting with plenty of budget chat tomorrow.
Thanks, +exiting stage left+, thanks, *bow*, thanks again, points to the balcony, does a slightly Republican ‘Woo!’, pats left breastbone even though the heart is actually quite central, thanks once again +exits+
