Election blogs

Quite a few election blogs have sprung into existence recently. Here’s a list of the ones of which I’m currently aware:

There may well be more election blogs than this. Please tell me about any others in the comment box. I’ll create a separate sidebar blogroll category for them when I think we’ve got a fairly complete list.

Again let me explain to new readers. Troppo’s blogroll listing policy is to attempt to be as inclusive as possible. That is, I’ll list every Australian blog with any significant political content of which I become aware, irrespective of what I think of its quality. So feel free to tell me about your blog.

Hiya Ken, I read you most days through my rss feed. Have a look at mine, not sure if it qualifies as a pure political/election blog. I had planned to write about bikes and whatever took my fancy, but the election started shortly after I started so I thought I’d try my hand at it until it’s over. Then it’s back to the wheels.

Thanks Ken.
And I like Philip, btw. But then I believe all cyclists are politically wise (except the execrable LGF which I won’t even link to.

Hi Ken, have a go of the uncategorisable but magnificent reasonsyouwillhateme.blogspot.com, particularly http://reasonsyouwillhateme.blogspot.com/2004_08_01_reasonsyouwillhateme_archive.html

Hi Ken, I keep an eye on the Armadillo, amongst other Aust. blogs as a way of maintaining an ear to the rumblings in the homeland from (currently dreary) London.

It’s not an Australian blog but if you had an international politics/issues category then consider adding perfect.co.uk to it. It’s a group blog which I contribute to. It covers UK, EU and US politics, global social issues such as the environment and a other (IMHO) worthwhile miscellany.

cheers, Nathan

And I’ll link yours as well (and the others that Chris Sheil listed the other day). But not tonight. I don’t have the energy. Thanks for the tip though. And more are welcome.

Ken – Real life trumps blogging. Always. Always.

But to tire you out some other day. Other new link to me and one from their links:

suki has an opinion-

Feel free to link me although my quality is low and I don’t know how significant my political content is. Plus my boss keeps telling me I defy categorization!

I was hoping I could do this, as soon as I turned to new blogger Evan Jones’s “Alert and Alarmed”, which has a fine piece on the real nature of class war and a sustained rivet popping assault on the…
