September the 11th is supposed to be a good day to bury bad news, and Iain Dale has chosen today to publish his top 100 Labour blogs. NTaH is down from a heady No30 (I think - I can't find it now) to a lowly 74 this year.
I'm trying to put a brave face on this, but if I'm honest, I've let you - my readers - down a little bit in 2008 by somewhat neglecting this blog in favour of my far-more-boring-if-that's-possible Local Democracy blog - a site I confidently predict will slip beneath Mr Dale's radar (it's much more non-aligned than NTaH is, that's for sure).
I notice that the Virtual Stoa - so good they ranked it twice - is bookending this blog at both no 67 and 86 - surely grounds for celebrations in the Senior Common Room at Scone College?
Dave Osler isn't there at all - wtf? And I don't know how Bloggerheads or Chicken Yoghurt will console themselves with dropping off the list entirely.
How the mighty are fallen.
