Yes! It's that time of the year again. It's party conference season and a time for me to
shamelessly flog my dog-awful list of mates' blogs have a bit of fun and find out who are the best bloggers in Britain, according to my mates a big cross-section of the voting blogosphere. So I'm announcing the Anton Vowl list of the top 10 blogs. Sorry if you didn't have time to vote, or, being someone who doesn't read my blog, hear about it. But I can now present my list in full:
1. The Enemies of Reason
2. The Enemies of Reason
3. The Enemies of Reason
4. Inexplicably, John Redwood's Diary, somehow
5. The Enemies of Reason
6. The Enemies of Reason
7. The Enemies of Reason
8. The Enemies of Reason
9. The Enemies of Reason
10. The Enemies of Reason.
Now it might at first glance appear that the list is dominated by left-wing blogs written by me, but if we compare it to last year's list, we can see that in fact more left-wing blogs, such as Obnoxio The Clown, Harry's Place and Tory Bear, are making inroads into the blogosphere - so it's not as straightforward as once it was.
Some rather churlish sorts will point out that dozens and dozens of blogs asked to be excluded from this list on the grounds that "It's a fucking carve-up, you potato-headed cunt" and "When blogs get the same number of votes, who breaks up the ties? Is it you? And what criteria do you use? And why should I give a shit about your fucking list anyway, you tedious cock-end?" but they are clearly in the minority because this year I received billions and billions of votes, which I hesitate to say I didn't count: I left that to people whose employment prospects depend on me, so they're entirely independent. Hope that clears everything up.
It's also this time of year when the "Anton Vowl Really Clever Writing Awards By Brilliant People" have been launched. The fact that I am a judge and my mates have sponsored categories obviously has nothing to do with my selection in the categories of "Most Clever Man", "Most Brilliant Person Ever" and "Most Handsome Blogger in Britain, Even If We Include Delingpole".
So I'll wait with bitten-down fingers to see if I'm in with a chance of winning something! Good luck everybody!
