Last year I was voted in Total Politics’ poll as one of the top 100 Labour bloggers in the country. I found it a bit of a shock as I’d only been a Councillor for 3 months at this stage (although the blog had been started up around 10 months before my election) and I hadn’t asked anyone to vote for it like I am doing right now!
So this year, I would be grateful if you could take a bit of time out to vote for my blog as one of your favourites in the Total Politics 2011 poll. Happy voting! – LINK TO VOTE SUBMISSION
In the annual Total Politics Blog Awards 2010, this site has been voted within the top 100 Labour blogs in the country. LabourList topped the Award, of which I am a contributor and is a site where I am profiled LINK
The list is the result of more than 2,200 people who voted in the Total Politics Annual Blog Poll during the second half of July LINK.
I was surprised to be listed as many actively encourage people to vote for their site to the awards. I did no such thing. But I’m happy that people are reading my posts and would like to thank those who voted for my site, whoever you are.
What’s better than leading a political party? Getting to determine its manifesto without any of the hassle of actually, you know, leading it. I’ve observed before that, line by line, chapter by chapter, The Plan: Twelve months to renew Britain is becoming official Tory policy. My friend and co-author Douglas Carswell is miffed at the lack of acknowledgement, and you can see his point: David Cameron’s policy wallah, Steve Hilton, has cut and pasted bits of our text with neither alteration nor attribution.
