Guido Wants Your Vote

Guido has been shortlisted for the Guardian Backbencher's political weblog awards. The other candidates are:-

Adam Smith Institute, the wonks who invented the poll tax, and err, nominated Guido 's blog as blog of the week.

Harry's Place, where lefties argue amongst themselves.

Political Betting, where punters and pundits argue about putting their money where their mouth is... hotly tipped.

Recess Monkey is my co-blogger here at and his own blog is not bad when he makes the effort.

So why should you vote for Guido? Because of the stories that got picked up by the press from Guido (recently the Shylock posters and Blunkett's tax problems), but mostly because I made you laugh...

So Vote Guido for Political Blog of the Year.

Vote because you laughed at Guido's graphics like this, this, this, this, and this. Oh and the pictures, even the one of Boris. Mind you, don't forget Guido was first with this, and not forgetting the misfortunes of Candy. And because Guido risks the writs, here, here and here. Vote because it would be absolutely right. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so I expect a vote from the Guardian's own diarist.

I'm torn as both of my co-bloggers are nominated. So I might just vote for Harry's Place or Political Betting. But surely it's a badge of success for this blog that two of its contributors are both nominated in their own right?

I know where you live.
