Read last month's Top10.


The main trend of the month was for strengthening of the political blog scene.

Reading LibDem Cllr Glenn Goodall, Maidenhead Conservative Right To Common Sense, and East Berkshire Green Party blogs were were all significant climbers, while fiercely independent Chairman Bill also made his thoughts count.

But the local blogosphere has taken on a distinctly less butch appearance with Babyrambles, Baglady and WendyHome all continuing steady progress up the charts.

However the prize for the biggest mover clearly goes to Berkshire Blog Review, which rose almost 20,000 places to sit just under the 4,000 mark - clearly a lot of you are following this list!

Kudos to all the local writers out there for making this one of the most vibrant local blogospheres in the country - keep it up and watch out for next month's list!

  1. Please give me the name and contact details of the Labour Mps for the Owlsmore and Sandhurst areas Berkshire

  2. Jay, the Bracknell constituency is currently represented by Andrew MacKay MP who is a member of the Conservative party.

    Mr MacKay is standing down at the next election due to pressure resulting from exposure of his abuses of the expenses rules, but the seat hasn't changed hands in several decades and with a large majority would appear unlikely to be a swing seat this time round either.
