    Similar to last year, we're going to have our own awards recognising your achievements and contributions to the HoC over this past year.

    The categories are (taken from last years awards):

    • HoC Member of the Year
    • Best Debater
    • Best Bill (Have a look through Hansard to refresh your memory.)
    • Best Newcomer (defined as someone who started posting here this year)
    • Biggest Drinker (I think this one's a foregone conclusion!)
    • Speakers award for awesomeness.



    You have until the 6pm on the 30th December to get nominations into me for the above categories and a poll will go up that same evening. You can nominate for each of the different categories (except the Speaker's award) and you can nominate the same person for more than one category. They do not have to be an MP to be nominated.

    Good Luck!

    - Nick

    Good luck!

      Not really a fan of these kinds of things. But, with reference to the bill, the Second Reading was more fun:

      "Offence of Bourgeois Indoctrination". A moment of hilarity

      I'm a newcomer, nominate me there. [/plug]

      HoC Member of the Year: For seemingly single handedly carrying the Labour party towards the end of last term, and producing a number of well written Bills - Adorno.
      Best Debater: For quality, rather than quantity: CyclopsRock.
      Best Bill (Have a look through Hansard to refresh your memory.): The top 5 in my view are: B265, B295, B305, B319 and B338. To narrow it down to 2, if I must: B305 and B338.
      Best Newcomer (defined as someone who started posting here this year): Wednesday Bass/Mann18
      Biggest Drinker (I think this one's a foregone conclusion!): Do I need to say?
      Speakers award for awesomeness.

      I'm a newcomer, and deserve the awesomeness award, and 'Adorno' is my dupe account so tbh at least all the awards should be heading my way.

        I feel I should have been a bit more diplomatic and nominated a lefty for debater/member of the year. Still, that Socialist bill is the clear winner for me.

        Proof that I also deserve the BEST BILL award, amongst all the others.

        Free Oral for the Elderly.

        We even had girls offering their services for the scheme and everything - clearly TSR wasn't ready for my genius.

        I've been looking through some of the polls from last year (Example 1, 2, 3, 4) and far more nominations were received than this time around, even including the noms I've received in private. I think I may extend the deadline and bang on about it till I get some more in. I refuse to accept that there have been such few members worthy of credit!

        I will nominate in a bit - seeing as though I'm not allowed to nominate who I really think should win :p:

        HoC Member of the Year: Drogue
        Best Debater: Adorno
        Best Bill: Free Oral for the elderly (you didn't say I can't nominate my own bill!)
        Best Newcomer: Me. But as I'm not allowed - SimonT
        Biggest Drinker: ;D

        Are we allowed to nominate more than one person for each thing? I think Melancholy deserves a nomination for best debater as well but if I can only do one it will be Adorno as his input was more frequent and directly relevant perhaps.
