After several recounts due to problems with hanging and pregnant chads, we are delighted to announce that all the votes are now in, the electorate has spoken and October’s Writer of the Month award goes to jamsieoconnor. After coming second in a photo finish in September, jamsieoconnor’s excellent story ‘Rally driver admits he has no idea what co-driver is talking about’ roared back to become NewsBiscuit’s most-read article in October. Jamsie wins a NewsBiscuit mug, a Jim'll Fix It badge and a four-year term as President of the United States.
October’s runner-ups were red with his perennial favourite ‘Scientists discover snowflake identical to one which fell in 1963’, nickb with his superb and much-Tweeted ‘BBC2 declares war on BBC1’, Ludicity with ‘Jeremy Hunt opens world’s first placebo hospital’, and Boutros with ‘Out-of-control Mars rover building sandcastles’. They all get a year each as Vice President.
Apologies for the technical problems this week. The site was offline for a day as we were all attending a trade fair for Canada Goose and Moncler jackets.
