Sedgemore Evicted

The Big Blogger week 3 has concluded.

Some of those Graunieistas got the hump with us, it seems.

Three weeks in, and the “weird, unnecessary and cruel anthropological experiment” that is Big Blogger (thanks, YellowDuck) has really started to warm up, with the liberal hawks over at Harry’s Place stepping in to hustle on behalf of Francis Sedgemore (apparently without prompting from the good doctor, it should be said).

“Far be it from me to suggest who you should vote off,” said Graham. “But that ‘Sacred Rain’ person is a member of the STWC…” Naturally, outside intervention in the famously transparent Big Blogger electoral process caused consternation among CIF commenters. BibaMejico couldn’t help asking why the HPers should hold such a grudge against the “Sunday Times Wine Club”; Szwagier even wondered whether they had something against the whole “Silly Two-Word Competition”.

Without pause for ad breaks or further ado, then, the results:

1: First, with fewest votes against his name, is Ali “Altrui” MacNab

2: Snapping at Altrui’s heels, in a close second place, is Christina “SacredRain” Morgan

3: Last by a landslide, and therefore duly evicted, is Francis Sedgemore.

So, we’ve asserted our independence from the chaps at Harry’s Place, and set the stage for a thrilling final week. Commiserations to Francis, whose t-shirt and mug will be in the mail as soon as we can find a work experience kid to lick the envelope. Tune in on Monday for the big showdown!

Still, we keep those Farringdon Road types on their toes like no-one else does, ain’t it true?

(It goes without saying that we have a better quality of commenter, too, of course.)
