Fellow Stoke Newington resident Dave Osler has nominated me as one of 3 thinking bloggers - saying "I don't think he really is a Blairite, to be honest. He's more an old school Croslandite with brains. But the blog is consistently thought-provoking, however you want to slice it." I'm taking that as a compliment given Dave's own politics, though it doesn't quite match Duncan's comment a couple of days ago: "I don't think I've ever come across a more unreconstructed Old Labourite than Luke Akehurst! It's like the years since approximately 1977 never happened."
The idea is that I have to now name 5 bloggers that who often cause me to think about what they have written - and they have to name 5 more.
Andrew Regan - the host of http://www.bloggers4labour.org/ - he doesn't post himself often, but when he does it is usually different and thought-provoking.
Janine Booth of the Alliance for Workers' Liberty - http://www.workersliberty.org/jblog - who promotes a version of Trotskyism that is more attractive than the shouty slogans at the SWP
Political journalist Paul Linford - http://paullinford.blogspot.com/
