Frankly unbearable levels of smugness over on Bristol East MP Kerry McCarthy’s blog today after she was given some Mickey Mouse award only open to MPs for her blog.
Since the news yesterday she seems to have given up any normal duties and has instead spent her time constantly bragging on her blog to her readership – which currently seems to consist of four members of the Libertarian Party and her mum – and trying to figure out how to plaster her site with an insufferable little winners logo.
What’s the big deal here? Kerry apparently won this award from the British Computer Society – amid rumours of a rigged pro-Labour jury I might add – for “engagement”. How hard is that when your competition is a bunch of clueless public schoolboys who don’t know anything about anything and think engagement is something you do with a young filly with a flat in Kensington whose daddy owns a bank and a large spread in the country?
Not that we’re bothered about gongs or anything here at the Blogger – where it’s award enough to know we’re selflessly serving the cause of truth and the public interest – but I wonder how Ms McCarthy would get on in a competition against some real bloggers like we’ve got here in Bristol rather than those ponces in Westminster?
Alas, so far there’s been no such awards available. Shame.
