England expects..?


A while ago, I put myself down to write one of the weekly Blawg Reviews, as did Corporate Blawg. I thought no more about it.

The Blawg Review is largely US based, that being where there are most Law blogs. What hadn’t occurred to me was that between us, Corporate and I had effectively kidnapped the Fourth of July. I’m on 2 July, Corporate is on 9 July.

Now the Blawg Review editor has noticed that Brits will be doing the hosting over the Independence Day period and, invoking Paul Revere, has thrown down the gauntlet, adding:

And we’re sure there are even more barristers and solicitors blogging across the pond who will join us in celebrating the best of the legal blogosphere.

So, the stakes have been raised and we may need to put on a good show. Of course, we Brit blawgers are just generally wonderful, but if anybody has any particularly fabulous posts in draft, posting them in the period after 25 June would be appreciated…

Justin Patten at Human Law was the first Brit to host a Blawg Review and now Charon QC has been invited to host in January. Soon the world will be ours.
