Saturday saw the launch of the Brighton Politics Awards 2009. Nominations for Politician of the Year have ben a bit disappointing, with Ed Milliband, John Prescott and Nancy Platts being the only nominations to date. It was Nancy who nominated Ed Milliband, immediately creating a new ategory, that of Brown Noser of the Year.
I had hoped for some interesting local nominations (not that Nancy isn’t interesting!). How about Mary Mears, or Bill Randall, or Alex Phillips, or Caroline Lucas, or Chuck Vere? Are they too uninspiring? Is there nobody else locally who deserves a nomination.
To make it easier for you, there will be four sub-categories, one for each of the four main parties (although it will be hard to find someone/anyone intresting/inspiring in the Lib Dems (beyond Stormin’ Norman Baker). Ideally there will be nominations for a non-Party person.
From each Party sub-category one nominee will emerge for the prestigious and much covetted Politician of the Year award.
So send your nominations in, with a word or two about why they should receive this unique honour!
Nominations can be made on Twitter (@BrightonPolitic) or by emailing email@example.com
