The Daily Telegraph won two of the top accolades in the What the Papers Say awards, held in London on Friday 16th December.
Boris won Columnist of the Year. The judges said:
He shows great range and can write on anything. You read it not because you share his view, but because you want to hear what he has to say.
Jan Moir was named Feature Writer of the Year. The judges described her as ‘fantastic’, ‘entertaining’ and a ‘great critic’.

Whoohoo! Well done Boris!
Congratulations, Mr Johnson. Having read your articles for some months now, I believe that you receiving this award is totally justified.
We’d like your comments on:
Another recognition of your talents, Boris. Do continue to pen those thoughts!
I reckon it was a fix….
Good work that man.
What the Papers Say? That bunch of lefties? I’d be worried I were you Boris – not that your fizz bang wallop style doesn’t deserve innumerable accolades – so much more amusing than the average stodge served up by the dailies. By the way who is that boring bloke who writes for the Telegraph. Somebody Johnson. God he’s boring.
Well done old boy, richly deserved 🙂
“… and could write any anything” ?? Loo roll’s difficult to write on, it blots up the ink from a fountain pen too quickly and spreads making the letters illegible and biro’s tear the paper. Hey, you could probably write on Izal OK, though!
Izal – now there’s a word that conjures a lost era: when we had to rough it or buff it.
First class job. Let’s hope it isn’t the only time a Conservative hopeful wins…
Holiday Greetings and Congratulations are in order, Mr Johnson
You are different. So are Spectator subscribers like me 😉
May your dream team (Melissa et al) effort continues in 2006.
