Thank You, Thank You, We Were Great, Thank You




Thanks to a relentless campaign of lies, bribery, coercion, nepotism, gerrymandering, cat-strangling, extortion, calling in favours, abuse, threats, blackmail, call-girls, sudden violence, drugs, mugging, hypnotism, brainwashing, abduction, ballot-rigging, burglary, driving without due care and attention, selling peerages and cooking, this blog has won the title of Most Consistently Entertaining Blog or Column in the Blogpower Awards. I came second in the Best Post of All Time category, pipped at the post by one Captain Smack. The post that should have won, but for this Smack character, was, of course, Science and Religion Again. Sorry. Thanks to all who voted for me  without requiring any exposure to my violent, criminal and dangerous persuasive methods. Thanks also to Nige for consistently entertaining. We now must continue to entertain consistently. No pressure then.

  6. I remember abuse, threats and blackmail, but I don't remember the call-girls.

    No matter, hearty congrats. Great-great-great-great-great-Grandad will be thrilled his vote made all the difference.

  7. Congratulations. There is no doubt you are consistent, you are entertaining, indeed consistently entertaining and often entertainingly consistent.

  8. Thanks, guys. Sorry you didn't get your call-girl, Peter, I'm on to the agency. And, Neil, I aim for a gentle inconsistency. Remember, a foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds. (Emerson)
