…and it WAS!
No, the cloaked figure of Wicked Uncle Costigan has just dropped by to collect our congratulations and his embossed glass ashtray before slipping away into the night, leaving only a set of treasury projections and a guide to British Bee Keeping to show he was ever even here.
Yes, we have been at the Liberal Democrat Blogger of the Year awards, sponsored by the Local Government Association for not-enough-money-to-pay-the-bar-tab, presented by Mr Former Lord Deputy Mayor Stephen, in the presence of Dale Winton, for "Come As Someone You're Not, Night!"
Mr Will was NOT Mr Brian Robson, winner of best Lib-Dem-with-a-Job Blog
Mr Stephen of the Glenn was (mostly) NOT Mr Slugger O'Toole, winner of best not-a-Lib-Dem Blog
Mr Jumbo Graham was NOT Mr Mark Reckons who everyone EXPECTED to be winner of Best Post of the Year
And Daddy Alex was very definitely NOT Blogger of the Year, Wicked Uncle Costigan …probably(!)
To the best of my knowledge, Ms Jo Winsome WAS Ms Jo Winsome.
Well Done everybody!
