The judges must be grateful that they are protected from lobbying. Most of them will be known to Alan Bearman of course, but I'm sure he doesn't lobby them at all.
Like Peregrina, a Mudcatter of two years' standing with 700-plus posts racked up, I quite like Emma's blog. Does that mean that I too am Emma, Folknacious?
Anyway, I hope Emma follows up, because there is no justification for the BBC playing its "journalism art or literature" card. And its claim that the judges are not performers is a straightforward lie.
