Best Blog named A Conservative's Blog
best blog named A View from the Right
Best blag named ....... you get the picture.

My picks from the above list are;

Don't like the best blogpower blog idea, and not only because I wouldn't have a chance... We cover far too many categories, styles and viewpoints for this to be a meaningful award.

And, yeah, maybe that's just one or two too many..?

An outsider looking in could be forgiven for thinking we are seriously indecisive and will never agree.

He'd also be forgiven for chortling: "That Higham fellow - bit off a bit more than he can chew this time - going about, bad-mouthing other blogawards."

Higham says: "Not a bit of it. Waht we have here is "democratic process", which is always messy. At this moment we are gathering, simply gathering.

This evening, it will all be collated and submitted for final approval. It's on track and if it's 70% acceptable to the sphere, that's good enough for this blogger.
