In the end I couldn’t even be bothered to boycott this and I still came in at number 95

Yep, the results no one was waiting are out! And the crowd went “meh”! (H/T Bob)

After much blogospheric discussion a small boycott was arranged of the awards which for various reasons I felt it not worth joining. In the end, I didn’t really notice the poll taking place and did nothing to publicise this blog with respect to it and nor did I offer any vote and yet still appeared in it (95th in a sub category of a sub category of UK blogs no less).

So I’m not sure if I’ve boycotted this or not. I’ve not bought any Jaffas from Haifa but I’m not sure I can boycott Israel by accident (and nor would I necessarily want to). Perhaps me nothing-ing these awards is a bigger statement than me kicking up a fuss. The ubiquitous call of Saturday night “leave it mate, it ain’t worth it.”

In any case, my sincere thanks is owed to all those who did feel I was worthy of their vote, I appreciate the pat on the back. But bear in mind who you’re tacitly endorsing: Iain Dale. Just ask Tim about him.

Here they are with my congratulations of course to those who take this sort of thing seriously.

I know Left Outsiders, I know, you’ve been waiting, and yet this is the first “substantive” blog post I offer you. But listen to me, I can change. I promise to do some proper blogging soon. I know you’re not interested in excuses but moving to London is hard work – I will return momentarily.
