So Lembit wins it for shagging a Cheeky Girl... says it all about politics as it does for Prezza coming (sic) second.

Gosh, so you think some of those votes might have been ironic?

David Davis, William Hague and Anne Widdicombe deserved their high placings.

John Coles said...

Bit of a stretch classifying ConservativeHome as a right-wing Blog. Would that it were.

At risk of stating the obvious, this is a Conservative blog. I credited Prezza with an excellent contribution to the Tory cause last year. Didn't Clare Short get the nod for DPM in a Dale poll shortly before she resigned.

Wow! Third! I'd like to thank my agent, my family and all of my loved ones; I like to... oh, stuff it. Can I kill Polly yet?

Hardly a vintage year, is it? What happened to real politicians, they all die to be replaced by the above list of cretinous nobodies?

Fifth huh cheers to whoever voted for me?

As an aside, I hope EU Referendum get's a web designer to sort their template out in the new year. I can't actually read it because the way it look offends me so much. I'd really like to read it as well.

Congrats to the top 6 right-wing bloggers of the year (I'm including you Iain). Interesting that card-carrying Conservative bloggers got less than 50% of the vote. I don't know what political point can be made, but I imagine that Labour Party members would utterly dominate a left wing bloggers poll. In fact, why don't you run a left-wingers blogging poll, Iain?
