And the winner is… a duck. A Scary Duck to be precise: Alistair Coleman’s witty, irreverent blog has beaten 300 rivals to take the title of Best British Blog 2002 and claim the prize of £1,000.

His blog features intelligent, confessional and entertaining rambles on everything from September 11, nuclear war and football hooliganism to the latest antics of a local dolphin nicknamed Randy.

It impressed the judges with its originality and personality: one described it as: “magnificent – well-written, focused and insightful”. Another said: “The best writer of the bunch, the content is excellent.”,3605,798749,00.html
