Two great new signings for LDV

by Stephen Tall on January 4, 2008

We at LDV are delighted to announce two new regular columns will be gracing our pages in the months to come:

Lib Dem blogger, Jonathan Calder (aka Lord Bonkers) will be editing a new ‘Top of the Blogs’ feature, The Dirty Dozen, each month rounding up some of the best articles posted to non-Lib Dem political blogs. Introducing it on his own site, Jonathan writes:

I aim to keep a balance between pointing to interesting postings that we Lib Dems may have missed and laughing at the folly of our opponents. If you see any suitable posts on Labour or Tory blogs, please send me the link.

Mike Smithson, editor of one of the most popular political websites in the country,, will be writing a monthly column for LDV. Mike was a founder member of the Liberal Democrats and stood for Parliament at the 1992 General Election. He was elected twice as a County Councillor in Bedfordshire and has also been a Borough Councillor in Bedford. We await his thoughts on the Lib Dems with keen interest.

Our thanks to them both.
