Orwell Prize Shortlist.

Well, it was fun while it lasted and everyone likes to have their ego massaged a little but my adventures in The Orwell Prize have come to an end. Good luck to the six bloggers who made it to the shortlist. I especially like Penny Red, although I don't imagine that the feeling is mutual. I had hoped that with an "Orwell" and possibly the prize for best allotment that I might be able to finally pull the birds. Best laid plans etc. Not a word to her indoors about that last bit mind.

Commiserations, but well done - the only anarchist to get on the list, ever. And that must be worth a peck on the cheek from somebody.
(Plus it relieves you of the embarrassment of refusing the big prize because of your deeply held anti-elitist beliefs...)
