Dick of the Year: John Hemming

This is a nomination for the Bright Green #dick2010 award by Stuart Neyton . John Hemming, Lib Dem MP It may perhaps seem strange to direct student anger over the outrageous tripling of tuition fees at a backbench MP, but LibDem John Hemming’s reaction to the protests stands out as being a particularly dickish moment […]

Dick of the year: Wayne Rooney

This is a nomination for dick of the year from Cory Hazlehurst who blogs here Wayne Rooney, footballer I’m not nominating Wayne Rooney because of his woeful World Cup performances. As Bill Bailey has observed, the English crave disappointment, so Rooney was only giving the public what they want. The nomination is also unconnected to […]

Dick of the Year: Danny Dyer

This is a nomination for the Bright Green #dick2010 award from Ruth Dawkins. Danny Dyer, actor and columnist Danny Dyer must have mixed feelings about 2010.   On the upside, after years of slogging away making laddish documentaries and straight-to-DVD films, he finally has name recognition beyond the viewers of Bravo.   On the downside, […]

Dick of the year: Jan Moir

This is a nomination for the Bright Green Dick of the Year (#dick2010) award from Patrick McAleer While the vast majority of Daily Mail columnists come across as a near parody of the far-right with the likes of Richard Littlejohn, Peter Hitchens and Mary Ellen Synon regularly spouting bile and nonsense about immigration, the EU […]

Dick of the year: Charlotte Metcalf

This is a nomination for #dick2010 from James Shield Judging by the number of nominations here, 2010 might just be the angriest year in recent memory. But if you’ve been enjoying a Christmas-based haze of angerless, boozy merriment, allow me to get you all raged up into a splenetic fury again just in time for […]

Dick of the year – Tony Blair (again)

This is a nomination for the Bright Green #dick2010 award from Jock Barge. We’ve had Tony before, but figured we’d publish this anyway, as befits his ego. Tony Blair – former PM, dick about the world For me, I think it still has to be Blair. Whilst this may not seem the most topical of […]

Dick of the year: Ed Miliband

This is a nomination for the Bright Green #dick2010 award from Jane Watkinson Ed Miliband, the flip-flop… When Ed Miliband (EM) was elected, many on the left believed Labour would become closer to its roots, the labour movement. However, many Greens (sadly, not me at first) rightly had a much more apathetic stance to EM’s […]

Dick of the year: Jo Swinson, Lynne Featherstone, Sarah Teather

This is a nomination for the Bright Green #dick2010 award from Lisa Ansell Jo Swinson, Lynne Featherstone, and Sarah Teather, our feminist MPs. This is a short, and very special joint Dick of the Year to Jo Swinson, Lynne Featherstone, and Sarah Teather, our feminist MPs. I am so proud to have MPs who declare […]

Dick of the Year: Alistair Darling

Reading through the nominations on the blog, I’m struck by the rush to slot the political football into an empty goal. Nominating Donald Trump, Nick Clegg or Lord Browne is easy. Their behaviour is so obviously destructive, self-serving and just plain stupid. I always like a more difficult task. I believe it is Alistair Darling […]
