La Vie Est Belge

Without having a proper blogroll, this will have to suffice as a look into those who i find difficult not reading on a daily basis.

In no particular order…

The Croydonian is quite simply one of the most informative, erudite and witty blogs i’ve come across. A man of, it would seem, impeccable taste, an eye for the absurd and always the first port of call if you wish to know about what’s really going on in the world.

– The Ministry of Truth is a blog i only stumbled across thanks to the whole Bob Piper saga, so a recent addition to my must reads. However, Unity has got it going on. Someone who goes into great depth and leaves no stone uncovered – each post is a pleasure to read.

Iain Dale’s Diary just rocks. One of the more prolific posters around, he’s generally the first to bring your attention to things going on in the Conservative sphere. Highly amusing and someone i would love to see elected as a politician. Even as an A-list candidate, he doesn’t appear to pull his punches and comes across as being frank and honest.

– The irrepressible Guido Fawkes digs the dirt on everyone. Love him or loathe him, Guido has been around for a while now and has got his finger on the pulse. If the politicians want to play dirty, fine – Guido will stop at nothing to uncover the sleaziest goings on in the Westminster village.

– The mighty Manic is one of the first bloggers i came across. Tim has, by his own admission, been around for ages and seriously knows his stuff. The causes he brings to your attention are always worthy and his ideas are inspired. The wealth of information contained within Bloggerheads is immense.

Dizzy is a switched on individual if ever there was one. Mixing politics and IT always makes for a fascinating read. He knows his shit and is always willing to call a spade a spade.

His Grace is possibly the most erudite blog i’ve found. Politics and religion in an appealing, accessible and interesting manner. Cranmer has also cultivated a commentariat that often adds a layer of meaning that makes each post a veritable treasure trove of information, ideas and discussion.

EU Referendum is also a mine of information. Richard North has truly opened my eyes to the woeful treatment of Britain’s armed forces. And his Corruption of the Media deserves some kind of award. Helen Szamuely is one of the more insightful authors in the British blogosphere. Together they make an awesome team.

This list is by no means exhaustive but i do tend to find myself browsing these blogs on an almost daily basis. If you’re open-minded and are savvy enough to recognise personal bias, these blogs will genuinely open your eyes to some of the things that are going on in the world that you won’t generally read in the papers or see on the news bulletins.

These are the people who are challenging the MSM… fuckin good luck to ’em i say. Keep up the good work y’all.
