Longlisted for the Paul Foot Award

There are two rival verdicts on my Lutfur Rahman reporting today. With his usual calm moderation, the Guardian’s Ken Livingstone blogger, Dave Hill, calls it “the narcissistic bumptiousness of a spoiled adolescent who’s just read his first Dan Brown novel.”

Also today, however, my reporting here and in the paper on Lutfur has been longlisted for the Paul Foot Award, the country’s best-known national investigative journalism prize. The judges called it “impressive.”

I know, of course, that Foot was a bit of a nobody compared to the journalistic powerhouse that is Dave Hill – but it’s nice to have, all the same.
