A Greener Place to Live

Congratulations are in order for the Greenies who have put Redbridge on the blogging map. That wearer of gaudy silk ties, Iain Dale, has begun publishing the Total Politics Best blogs 2010 starting with the Greens and there are four and a half Redbridge blogs in the Top 25.

Up one place at 4th is Barkingside 21.
Our very own Weggis is up to 11th from 19th .
Flesh is Grass, a keen High Street Shopaholic, reappears after a year break at 14th.
And Chadwell Green is a new entry at 24th.

The half blog is Greens Engage, in at 16th, which lists among its members 2 Redbridge residents. The others appear to be from Liverpool.

This of course is just the first list, but as there appears to be little blogging going on locally in the Blue, Red and Yellow corners Redbridge can’t expect much from those lists when they are published. We do though expect Roger Evans to feature in the Top Councillors list as he did last year.

It also appears that this blog is in mix, so somebody must have voted for it ;-) We are in the Non Aligned category.

  1. But has not Chadwell (and Seven Kings) Greens blog gone dormant? When I last looked, rather than the several threads a day it seemed to have ended with the Chadwell Ward byelection.

  2. He's probably having one of these - Fair Trade of course!

  4. "Break" as in opportunity - that's very kind of you!

  5. I didn't specify. As to "kind" - please stop trying so hard to spoil my reputation.

  6. Rumour has it that the blog will be re-launched soon with a new name and a new Redbridge wide focus.

  7. Focus? Isn't that another party's newsletter? Still does not explain why a dormant blog gets a placing.

  8. I see that Roger Evans has slipped 2 places in the Top 30 Councillor blogs.
    Other than that I can't see any sign of a Redbridge presence there.

  9. Not surprising really Weggis. He hardly maintains it regularly.

  11. Yes, and in the Red corner newly elected Wes Streeting is in the Labour list at number 89.

    Roger is also in the Blue list at number 38 up from 68.
