The Orwell Prize 2012 - Longlist

 I've been longlisted for the Orwell Prize (blogging) 2012. I'm sure there's some unwritten protocol to be all super cool about not being excited about it but as I'm not very cool I didn't get that memo and have been squee'ing with excitement all afternoon. In between swigging from the Oramorph bottle which might've contributed a fair bit in its own right to the squeeing now I think about it. Behaviour which, I hope, Orwell would've been proud of!

Congratulations. What with hardly sleeping these days I followed every link and found some fantastic and inspirational reading. Not all happy and fluffy but gritty and hard headed responses to a massive series of social injustices. Hpe you win - you deserve it!

Oh Congratulations, big style, what an accolade to even be nominated!! But you do deserve it hun, for all your hard work, making it all a little bit clear for those of us affected, xxx

Imagine you're four does it for me every time.
As emotive and hard hitting as Cathy Come Home, it should be made compulsory reading for all.
