So that’s it, polls are closed. The Brummie of the Year 2007 has been decided, but who is it?
Well, we’re not going to tell, not yet away, blogging evangelist Pete Ashton and campaigning pub landlord John Tighe have been neck and neck almost since the polls opened – and there was still little but a cigarette paper between them as the votes were finally counted. We’ll announce the winner early next week – which will give us time to sort out the trophy.
The rest of the results, in reverse order are:
Richard Pawley – 0.8%
Condori : Big Chief Busks With Recorder – 1.6%
Martin Mullaney – 2%
Soweto Kinch – 3.8%
Carl Chinn – 4%
In fourth place, but still up for so many book awards we’re sure she’ll cope:
Catherine O’Flynn – 11.4%
Winners of best festival of 2007, according to Plan B magazine, but only third for Brummie of The Year:
Lisa Meyer & Jenny Moore of Capsule – 15.9%
Well done to Cath and the Capsule girls, we’re a little disappointed with Condori’s showing – we thought pan pipes were very popular. You can read a little more about the candidates here.
So, stay tuned…
