Vote for me!

It’s time for the annual Freemania Blog Awards, and this year as ever the very finest the blogosphere has to offer is being judged across one category: Best Blog Written By Tom Freeman. Nominations have now closed, and I can announce that there is one contender for the trophy: Freemania.

I am, of course, deeply honoured to have made it this far, but I’m not complacent. There’s still the public vote to get through. You can vote for me, as you choose, and I very much hope that you will. There is a small fee to cover the admin costs of registering to vote, but I’m sure you’ll agree that you can’t put a price on democracy. Please send cheques for £50.00, payable to ‘Tom Freeman’, to the usual address along with your vote for Freemania.

Voting will close at the discretion of the returning officer, me, and the results will be announced once I’ve sobered up.

Thanks for your support!

Hold on, how many votes were cast at shortlisting? I may demand a recount.

There were 10,000,000 nominations to the shortlist, of which 10,000,000 were for Freemania. And yes, I too was surprised at the roundness of those numbers, but the Iranian Electoral Commission assures me they're accurate.

A shocking abuse of power and an affront to democracy!

I'm minded to alert Tom Freeman right away....
