What's been happening at the Daily Referendum

This is just a quick round up of what's been happening in my little part of the blogosphere:

First of all I would like to congratulate Jeremy Jacobs on completing his trek of Africa and raising over £6000 for the Breast Cancer Campaign. You can read about his gruelling trek HERE.

I published my 100th post on the 17th of this month, no great shakes I know but it's a bit of a milestone for me.

My Website Daily Referendum has been accepted for archiving by the British library. I hope this gives a little credibility to the results of the referendum votes held on my Blog.

Politico's book shop have accepted me as an associate so you can buy your Political books through the link on my site. The first five to to place an order over £10 get a free 'Backwards Bush' digital timer (Count down the days, minutes and seconds to the end of George W Bush's presidency - see picture).

I have been pushing the following very worthy E-Petitions, please consider signing up to them:

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to organise government support and finance for the children's hospices. Please click HERE.

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to stop the discrimination of lung cancer patients in England and ensure that they have access to the drug Tarceva! Please click HERE.

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to initiate a Parliamentary debate on the adoption of a national anthem for England that is distinct from the British national anthem. Please click: HERE

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Change the English National Anthem to Jerusalem. Please click HERE.

And finally I have come across some great new (to me) Blogs which I have added to my Blogroll. Please pay them a visit you won't be sorry:

Burning our money

Islington Newmania

Chipen Dale's Diary

St Crispin's Day

Guano Fork's Blog

Lewisham isn't great for everyone

Martine Martin's Lebwog

PJC Journal

That's all for now folks - cheers.

Thanks for the plug. Much appreciated.That £6000 is split between myself and Amy Chau. One can still donate through "Just Giving". There's a special link on both my Blogs.

Newmania said...

Nice of you..I `ve linked to you. You are quite serious about it aren`t you.

Daily Referendum said...


You are more than welcome. I hope donations continue to come in.

Daily Referendum said...


Thanks for the link. The answer is yes I am quite serious. I'm no great political mind but I do care strongly about issues which effect my family and Britain in general.

Also as with a growing number of English citizens I feel we are getting a raw deal.

Many thanks for the link.

It's a pleasure Chippy, codpiece collecting and politics are an interesting combination.
