Liberal conspiracy is a leftish UK Labour Party-supporting blog which I consider is pretty good and deserves support. It is, necessarily, focused on UK politics with just a hint of US colour, but very little european coverage.
However, the editor and principal contributor, Sunny Hundal, has gone off to volunteer for the Obama campaign and those left in charge, recognising that footfall will be reduced if there isn't a decent turnover of diaries, have requested input from the readership.

One thing I feel is often missing from the economic debate in the UK is any real sense of an alternative economic agenda separate from the neoconservative one shared by all three major parties here. Given that this has become the major focus of ET in the last year or two, I think maybe we could crowd-source a primer article or two putting forward new ways of thinking. Perhaps beginning with critiquing the current BB/ECB approaches to the European default and how it is destroying Greece and Spain.
Maybe looking at how Iceland approached dealing with its debt and those responsible and how it now appears to be emerging from the period of pain.
I don't know, I'm not one of the economics whizzes here, but this represents a window of opportunity to promote ET on a national political stage
