  1. What a load of crap. How did he even get on the list? And 1,000 votes wins? Anyone could rustle up enough IP addresses to fiddle that. Even a retard journalist.

  2. Oh boo hoo: man who has opinions different to Timmeh wins poll, blogosphere must be dying. Yeah, of course.

    At least none of your commenters are inciting violence against him this time, which is something I guess.

  3. “At least none of your commenters are inciting violence against him..”

    Well, winning a blog award (even if grossly undeserved in his case) isn’t quite in the same category as gleefully cheering the deaths of Iraqis at the hands of terrorists, is it…?

  4. Well seeing how many false identities he created in order to edit his Wikipedia entry into a more laudatory fashion, I’m surprised he only managed to vote for himself that many times.

    I await with pleasure a series of blustering threats from him now, as is his wont.

  5. And maybe it just doesn’t matter. Last year EUReferendum won. This year we did not bother to advertise the competition (I didn’t think we should have last year either) and came second. Given the number of votes for Neil Clark, for us and the others, it really, really, doesn’t matter. The British blogoshpere and its condition will not be decided by something like this. Honest.

  6. Far be it for a bare-arsed Scotch banditto like me to mention anything as elevated as cricket; but I seem to remember the ‘death’ of that sport in England was mourned by young ladies who then burnt a couple of stumps in its memory. These burnt stumps then gave their name to some sort of contest or other. Apparently England have even won it a couple of times. So reports of English cricket’s demise were greatly exaggerated.

    Although I don’t agree with a very great deal of what Neil writes, he might deserve his award this year. Or else he worked harder for it by campaigning harder for it. And the nature of my private communications with him, all of which have been very civil, have given me the impression that he’s really not all that bad a chap, contrary to popular belief. I would never vote for him at a parliamentary election, of course, but then again, Tim, I’d never vote for you either.

    And you think anyone’s interested in this because…?
