As mentioned a few weeks ago, voting was taking place for the annual total politics blog poll.
Well the polls have now close and the first of the results are now in, and in the councillor blog section for the first time I have made the top 30 reaching no 26 on the list.
Blogging councillors in the north get a few mentions with the Bickerstaff record, the blog of West Lancashire Councillor Paul Cotterill taking the number two spot, the Cllr Tim blog of Cllr Tim Cheetham from Barnsley taking the number 11 spot, and whilst I may not agree with some of the content Salford Conservative Councillor Iain Lindley’s blog coming in at number 14.
A special mention for Cllr Luke Akehurst from Hackney who once again topped the poll despite what must have been a very trying year so far, with the majority of the time spent in hospital.
Many thanks to those that voted for me, and if I had realised in advance I would have used this post for the 1000th post on the blog, instead it will do for the first of the next 1000 !
