  • Tim Worstall is a sane economist with a laconic style and a developed sense of humour. Good at picking up the idiocies in the pronouncements of politicians and media. Obsessively tracks the words and wisdom of a certain tax accountant, which can be tedious for outsiders but which seemingly gives him hours of (probably solitary) pleasure. Occasional bad language when roused. He has recently launched two further websites of Worstellian wisdom, the Continental Telegraph and expunct
  • William Briggs, Statistician to the Stars! A statistician who writes amusingly, well and – good grief! – authoritatively in his subject. His frequent Aquinas posts are not to everyone's taste, but can be interesting.
  • Michael Kelly Well-written, humorous pieces on a website with a refreshingly different, punky garage-band design that rightly takes no prisoners. His analysis of the 'CRU files' in 'Climategate' is masterly and quite definitive.
  • Stroud Is All Over the Place An interesting personal blog by the author William Stroud, who takes us to a lot of interesting places, meets interesting people and eats interesting food. – all of which he photographs and writes well about with calm enthusiasm and humour. A good internet companion.
