The longlist for the Orwell Prize for political blogs has been announced. The best political blog out there, Lenin's Tomb (whose latest post is a review of Badiou's The Meaning of Sarkozy) is not longlisted.
I didn't seriously expect to get on the long-list. Most of the finalist blogs are those written by media personnel or politicians - that says a great deal about what they think good political writing is.
I am more surprised by the absence of Guido Fawkes, which is the best read political blog in the UK.
