Vote in the 2008 Iain Dale's Diary Political Awards Poll

VOTING OPENS IN THE 2008
IDD POLITICAL AWARDS

The polls have opened in the 2008 Iain Dale's Diary Political Awards. You have nominated people in 39 different categories, from Politician of the Year, Political Journalist of the Year, to Sexiest Politician of the Year and Blogging Personality of the Year. At the end of the poll I ask you to give some serious and not so serious predictions for 2009.

You don't need to vote in all the categories but if you do, it should take you 10-15 minutes to complete. I think you'll enjoy it.

The poll remains open until midnight on Boxing Day and I will post the results between then and the New Year.


VOTE HERE
Disclaimer

I should make clear that this poll is a bit of end of year fun. Those who vote only represent themselves and this inevitably means there will be inbuilt biases - not least because the voting choices have all been nominated by a self selecting audience. I'm not asking other bloggers to encourage their readers to take part, so I am not pretending the results will show any sort of political balance whatsoever. It is Just. A. Bit. Of. Fun.

Vote for your Political Hate Figure of 2008...

Gordon Brooon is listed twice Iain. Are you expecting a heavy vote?

Sexiest Woman MP and no Yvette Cooper as an option - I feel cheated

Ah, Yvette Cooper is a woman. That explains how she's married to Ed Balls. I thought she was Jimmy Clitheroe reincarnated.

DALE I NOMINATED IRFAN AHMED WHOS BLOGGER I READ AND U DID NOT PUT HIM IN THE POLL.

Iain, you have got Ian Paisley down in the N Ireland section but not indicated whether it was Snr or Jnr. I'm guessing you meant the father.

Iain, i nominated Ann Widdecombe as sexiest female politician, but she's not on the list?

I don't understand.

I have to say the omittence of the "New Yorker" from best political magazine is a travesty.
It has been an incredible year for that magazine, and the commentary and opinion posts on the 2008 Presidential Election have been particuarly insightful.

For some reason it's the sexiest female politician of 2007. Weren't there any sexy female politicians this year?

Wee mistake Iain? Or a Freudian slip?

Jimmy said...

Meg Munn's absence from the Worst Minister category is a travesty. How could she have done any less?
