Henry Macrory was robbed! Best Twitterer in Westminster by a mile. Boris uses it quite well but usually more as a Mayor's information service than as a personal/political activity (which apparently he's not allowed to do, lamentably - a strange rule that doesn't seem to apply to ministers).

As for Guido Fawkes, this has very much been his year, hasn't it?

I nearly forgot to point out the irony of LabourList coming second in your ranking of top centre-left blogs. I doubt you could have imagined that ever happening back in March!!!

This is all very exciting, isn't it? Glad I sent my nominations in!

Oops! My wife has just used her new camera to take photos of me at work. "These can be your publicity shots!" she said. "And we'll have to get you a web camera." Oh, God. I can't wait. :)

Devil's Kitchen said...

Thanks to those who voted for The Kitchen's coverage of the CRU documents: the full list of posts can be found here.

And I'm not done yet...

Blog personality? Some sort of oxymoron non?
