Orwell and me, 2009

Here, doubling as a review of my blogging year, is my chronological (draft) list of 10 posts for Orwell Prize submission

I’ve tried to reflect a spread across the year, and a range of areas of interest, alongside a smattering of the autobiographical (Orwell was into that, so I might win).  

Plus there’s a couple where I’ve just been having a bit of a laugh.

Comments welcome, though not expected.   Be interesting to see Dave’s selection of his favourite posts of 2009, if he can be arsed.  And anyone else’s if they fancy it. Apart from Tom Harris.  His’ll just be crap.
