The Staggers, the New Statesman‘s rolling politics blog, has been shortlisted for the Editorial Intelligence Comment Awards 2013. The blog is edited by NS staffer George Eaton, and we’re delighted to see it getting the recognition it deserves.

The novelist and journalist Will Self, who writes a weekly column for the magazine, has been shortlisted in the Cultural Commentator category, while the NS has dominated two out of the three spots available in the Mainstream Media Blogger category, for pop culture writer Bim Adewunmi and legal blogger David Allen Green. Martin Robbins was also nominated for Foreign Commentor.

A special congratulations also to goes Glosswitch, who was shortlisted in the Independent Blogger for her website Glosswatch.

The winners in each category will be announced at a ceremony on Tuesday, 26 November 2013, hosted by Peter York. For more information visit the Comment Awards website.
