Has NGO campaigning gone soft?

Just posted my next contribution to the Political Dynamite blog, this week asking ‘Have NGO campaigns gone soft’. Have a look and join the debate.

Lists of people who matter

Regular readers of this blog will know that I’m a big fan of lists. Although I’m not a natural Daily Telegraph reader, their annual profiles of the top 100 most influential people in each of the political parties is an invaluable resource when it comes to planning routes to influence.

100 Most influential Left-wingers – 1 to 25, 26 to 50, 51 to 75 and 76 to 100

100 Most influential Right-wingers – 1 to 25, 26 to 5051 to 75 and 76 to 100

Top 50 Lib Dems – 1 to 25 and 26 to 50

Other lists produced in time for Conference season include;
Left Foot Forward – most influential left-wing thinkers
New Statesman – 50 people who matter

Has anyone else found any useful lists?

Political Dynamite

I have to confess that I’ve never managed to find a blogging rhythm, so perhaps it’s foolish that I’ve joined as a regular contributor to the Political Dynamite blog which launched this week.

The blog is a collective effort, pulling together a fascinating mix of campaigners working on a range of different causes. The writers have an eclectic set ideas and approaches about how change happens so it should be a great blog to follow.

I’ll be attempting to write a regular article on a Monday, and will cross-post my articles on here. But do pay politicaldynamite.com a visit, post a comment and add it to your RSS feed.
