Reminder: nominations close 1 pm for Kiwiblog Awards

December 17th, 2007 at 10:20 am by David Farrar

You can still nominate people in the following categories:

  1. MP of the Year
  2. Labour MP of the Year
  3. National MP of the Year
  4. “Minor” Party MP of the Year
  5. Press Gallery Journalist of the Year
  6. Public Servant of the Year

You don’t need to nominate in all categories. Also feel free to state why, if you want to.

At around 1 pm I’ll select the finalists and launch a poll starting 2 pm today and finishing 24 hours later on 2 pm Tuesday.

All nominations are for “positive” awards, so treat them in that spirit.

Previous nominations are here.

    I still reckon you can’t go past Charles Ashe MP as MP of the Year. He should also be nominated for Minor Party MP of the year as well.

    1. MP of the Year – Trevor Mallard for taking the perception of politicians to a new low. Well below used car sales men and now almost equal to drug dealers and gang members. Oh, yes, he does belong to a gang, I take that one back.
    2. Labour MP of the Year – Trevor Mallard for the best photo opportunity of the century, in court, without the “mongrel” attitude. Patching up the negative view of politicians.
    3. National MP of the Year – Bill English. For taking on the EFB and taking on deputy leader with gusto and taking it to Cullen.
    4. “Minor” Party MP of the Year – Destiny, how minor can one get!
    5. Press Gallery Journalist of the Year – Audrey Young, telling it like it is.
    6. Public Servant of the Year – Hugh Logan, no explanation here, actions are louder than words.

    MP of the Year: Ron Mark. He has far too much common sense, and not the kind Annette King has, to be in NZ First.

    National MP of the Year: John Key. He has grabbed the centre and making a politician as skillful as Clark look radical. He looks electable. He is leading a mediocre bunch, though, IMO.

    Minor Party MP of the Year: Ron Mark.

    Public Servant of the Year: Erin Leigh. Grace under fire.

    2. Labour MP of the Year – Judith Tizard – the ultimate in figuring out how to stay in Helen’s good books
    3. National MP of the Year – Judith Collins – for finally shutting up and allowing National to move upwards in the polls
    4. “Minor” Party MP of the Year – Gordon Copeland – for wanting to be even more irrelevant
    5. Press Gallery Journalist of the Year – Colin Espiner – for blogging
    6. Public Servant of the Year – David McGee – for an outstanding career as Clerk and then moving on to the Ombudsman.

    1. Bill English- head and shoulders over all others, swallowed his pride and got stuck in to Burton;Cullen; Clark and the minister for common sense, made them all look like has beens on the road to work and income.

    4.Winston Raymond Peters because he shares with me the same birthday 11th April, about the only thing positive in his favour.

    Dom Post in their pollies/wallies awards today appear to reckon Woolerton, perhaps it was irony?

    One of the things to come out of this is the rise of the new “Young Turk”, Finlayson. He really is a making the most of his time in the house.

    I agree with most of Cubits analysis except for Phil Goff. He would never have the guts to push out Helen. he’s just biding his time, waiting patiently and saying very little. I haven’t heard of mouse squeak out of him for ages.

    Tell me if I’m wrong.

    good call on Pita Sharples.

    Ol Phil has buried himself in Mfat, let Winston take the spotlight and just waited, waited, waited……….

    Wouldn’t be suprised if H1 had done a Howard/Costello deal and kept it quiet especially after big Mike had gone over to observe the Aussie elections. He’ll be well gutted if Labour lose.

  12. East Wellington Superhero (1,151 comments) says:

    1. Bill English – No other MP with as much character and courage. Could have given up but didn’t

    2. Helen Clark – Head and shoulders above the other seat-warmers.

    3. Bill English – see above – otherwise John Key for building a tight team.

    4. Abstain.

    5. Ian Templeton – one of the few that complains about low quality debate in the House.

    6. Corporal Willie Apiata – winning a VC and then having the honour to be carted around NZ by a PM that dislikes (or disliked) everything his VC stands for and not complain.

    I know that it is meant to be positive but can I endorse the Doug Woollerton worst MP for being such a prat nomination. I would also like to add that he comes across as extremely arrogant with an overinflated belief in his own abilities and his contribution to society.
