Conspiracy Theory

The latest addition to the British blogosphere was unveiled yesterday. I couldn't find anywhere whether the date (November 5, Guy Fawkes Day) was chosen deliberately, but it seems kind of appropriate for a 'super-blog' entitled Liberal Conspiracy.

It is edited by Sunny Hundal of Pickled Politics, has over 20 listed contributors including most of the best known left-liberal bloggers (e.g. Dave Osler, Justin McKeating, Kerron Cross etc). The blog is described as a "forum and resource for those who see themselves on the liberal-left", the aims of the 'liberal-left' are described as "social justice, equality, eradicating poverty etc", and the comments policy is described as "very militant".

The British leftist blogging community certainly needs a kick up the backside to begin to compete effectively with its right-wing counterpart. Time will tell if this will provide it...

The list of contributors to Liberal Conspiracy can be found here.
The descriptions of the blog and its aims can be found here.
