Poll: Best Weekday Political Print Journalist
Another day, another poll, this time for your best weekday newspaper journalist of the year. Vote in the left hand column. The poll result will be published next week.
A poll for the dead tree brigade? Hmmm! Are we already seeking to pander to the Red Tops?
Is it possible to have a write-in vote next year?
Is it possible to have a none of the above answer?
I really hope we get a poll for the best Iain Dale's Diary poll...
Where is Boris?
Where's Bill Deedes? Where's Quentin Letts? Even, where's Matthew d'Ancona?
And, echoing Stroppy, where's None of The Above?
Where is Heffer? These polls are pointless.
Verity and anonymous, you really don't read do you? This is a poll for political news journalists, not columnists or sketch writers. Heffer is not a news journalist.
Iain Dale said: Verity and anonymous, you really don't read do you? This is a poll for political news journalists,".
My non-reading led me to read the heading of the poll: "best Weekday Political Print Journalist". I've looked for an anagram or trick wording, but I cannot see the word "news" anywhere in there.
I'm a country boy myself, but I thought heifer was a cow?
Seriously, have any of them done anything of note this year?
None of them have brought down a Cabinet minister like Francis Elliot did in 2005 or secured an earth-shattering scoop like Trevor Kavanagh did with the Hutton Report in 2003. Sorry Iain, this is just ego-massage.
