Congratulations to the excellent NHS Blog Doctor for beating us a thoroughly-deserved first place in the politics category of this year's Brit Blog Awards. Apparently judge Ed Vaizey MP, in a sad departure from parliamentary protocol, was unswayed by either our offer of a free stay in the Paris Ritz or the large bundles of cash in brown envelopes we attempted to stuff into his pocket as he passed the building. Not even our attempt to outfit him with a nice, new Gannex macintosh was to any avail. Frankly, if this is the new politics we may be forced to take up whittling for a living.
