... or I would if I had one—for it seems that you have voted The Kitchen into the Total Politics Top Ten Blogs once again. True, I have slipped from #6 to #9 but still your humble Devil is, in any case, ever so 'umble.
Anyway, since I don't have an agent to thank, I shall, first and foremost, thank the Filthy Smoker for invariably picking up the baton when I am busy as well as for writing—let's face it—some of the best posts that have appeared at The Kitchen over the last year or so.
As always, many thanks to all of The Kitchen's contributors, commenters and readers—all of you have done a sterling job.
I'd also like to thank Gordon "Grandad" Brown and his Cabinet of spivs, fuckwits, pikeys, idiots, thieves, morons, incompetents, twats, bigots, cunts and weapons-grade cock-endsTM for continuing to provide so much ammunition.
Although, naturally, I really can't leave the podium without thanking Dave "spam!" Cameron for being a natural runner-up. I have no doubt at all that Davey and his merry band of nitwits will continue to provide a great deal of fodder for The Kitchen over the next year or so.
I should also make mention of the Liberal Democrat leader, but unfortunately I can't remember who the fuck that is.
And so I think that's it for another year...
Oh! No, no, no, shit, wait! Wait! Shit. Just remembered...
I'd also like to thank my wife—the lovely Bella—for being generally delightful and, equally importantly, deeply tolerant of the amount of time that I sit staring at my computer screen. Ahem.
Anyway, cheers all!
Now let's put this carnival to bed for another year, shall we...?
