Thanet Blog Wins Politics Award

The votes are in for Tory funded Total Politics magazine's 100 best political blogs in the UK... and the winner is [drum roll]... Doctor Councillor Simon Moores (Conservative) for his veteran island blog Thanet Life!!! Hurrah!

Er, no, wait a minute, I've come over all Wogan there. No, the winner, according to Total Politics' founder and Tory doyenne of blogging, Kent's own Iain Dale (Mrs) actually is... [Get on with it - Ed]... Councillor Mark Nottingham (Labour) for his newbie Thanet blog From One End of Kent!!!! Double hurrah!!!

Although he's actually only made it to 99 out of 100 in the Labour Blogs category. And, um, they've called him From One End of Paint. Still, we'll, er, gloss over that, eh?

Well done, Councillor Nottingham for winning an award even if he didn't come in the top 98.

Oh do come on! Where are all the 'It's a whitewash!', 'His blog's full of emulsion!' and 'He's probably painting the town red!' cracks?

All dozed off, have you?

If coming in at 99th is winning I look forward to Labour winning in the next general election

Blimey! Ken actually made me laugh!

Yes, but neither Ken nor Simon won in the first 100 Tory blogs so less of the attempts at jokes, Councillor.

This result in a poll for a Thanet Blog should cheer you all up, except perhaps Moores and Flaig who both desperately polish their own egos in different ways. Thanet has the most vibrant and varied set of misfits blogging in the whole of the South East for our entertainment, information and pleasure so keep it up, all of you!

Annon 9:28, perhaps we should have a poll for Thanet greatest living englishman instead.

Anon 6 27 I didnt know Simon or I had entered anything, I certainly do not do this stuff to win awards, I do it because I feel it is important to engage all sectors of society, even the folk who have to use the web.

When I said 'even the folk who have to use the web', I was accused of being a cripophile!

Maybe I'm just not cut out for politics!
