News reaches me that I have been nominated for one of the Stonewall Annual Awards – obviously the political one. Nominated politicians include new Speaker John Bercow, secretary of state for culture, media and sport Ben Bradshaw, Labour MP Chris Bryant and me!
Since becoming an MP. I have been nominated and shortlisted for quite a lot of public awards: blogging, female politician of the year, New Statesman website of the year etc etc. So far – always the bridesmaid. I suspect, somehow, my unbroken record will continue.
