Brassneck: 10th most influential blog in Britain…

So says a recent poll by Editorial Intelligence. For those of you who have not yet tumbled, Brassneck is a blog I have been writing for the Daily Telegraph for the last six months or so. The poll was amongst ‘a self selecting group of individuals from politics, business, media, public life, and academia’ and is detailed within a report jointly commissioned by the Reuters’ Institute and Editorial Intelligence. The report, written by John Lloyd and Julia Hobsbawm is well worth reading, and is available here. Sadly I missed the launch event for unavoidable reasons, but Guido was scathing about the comments aimed at bloggers by some on the platform.
