B3tan Housewife

AKA Dan Bull. Since he released "Dear Lilly Allen" right here on b3ta, he's had an amazing amount of success. But he still releases all of his new stuff on b3ta before anywhere else. He's, single-handedly, brought B3ta to the notice of millions of people. And he's one of us.

Runner up should be Rory Lyon just so, when he picks up his award at the ceremony, I can kick his cowardly "key-board warrior" arse around the room.. Fucking muppet.....

Me, of course!
Because I just figured out how drag Queens fill in their eye brows.

Naturally, you can add your reasons.

Richard Littlejohn
He is responsible for single-handedly allowing me to have an Orwell style 1 minute of hate, admittedly all directed at the smug cunt... The worst bit about it being that I am sure he enjoys the hate.

Massively loved b3tan and Derby Bash supremo tragically taken from us in May of this year, and Prof Kenny Martin who faces the daily bummer of life without her. Mrs. Trellis for sorting out the whipround that realised over 2 grand in her memory. And Jahled for christening a baby snow leopard after her.

Also - cr3. 'Cos let's face it this entire Forum would fall apart at the seams without him giving up his time to keep it going...

Brian Blessed
He got close to the top of Everest, but said "Fuck that, saving someone's life matters more." He's got a list of acting credits as long as my cock*. And best of all? He will still happily shout "GORDON'S ALIVE!" given any reason.

* I wish my cock were that long.

Nick Clegg
I'm going to be Devil's Advocate here but:

How is it possible for one man to go from 'The Future Leader of this Nation' to 'Complete and Utter Twat' in six months?

Nick Clegg's not stupid. He speaks Dutch, which is virtually akin to possessing magical powers, and up until the early weeks of May, he spoke a good fight and actually had people believing he could make a difference.

And now he's canceling public events in the fear that he might meet with actual members of the public who aren't particularly keen on him for one reason or another.

So: Clegg is the major influence on British society in 2010. Even though he's a dick.

Julian Assange
Vote for this and we won't switch it to some twat from Facebook at the last minute.

Although knowing B3ta I imagine Brian Blessed is probably going to win. Or Jeremy the Horse.

For the why?

* For reminding us of that exciting moment in the 90s when geeks got together and muttered, "OMG. The internet will change everything."

* For living out a story better than any fiction that I've read out in yonks.

* For giving us crazy shit to read. I recommend to anyone who's run a website to read the mailing list stuff that an ex wikileak person leaked from when they were setting up the site in 2006/7. These people are geeks arguing about logos. This is what my life is like - except mine doesn't involve mind boggling plans to change governments using a truth bomb.

* For getting himself arrested on (possibly) rape charges for what amounts to shagging the fans. Long term b3tans will remember the lesson of John [*1]. Never, ever, shag the fans.

* For creating the real world theater that shows us how the world works. Hippies go, "it's a fascist dictatorship man" but when you've got the US Airforce closing down access to the Guardian newspaper - this is literally the actions of fascism. The world has been given a mirror and it's ugly.

* For making me believe that the Guardian newspaper is something worth fighting for. Balls of steel. They should have a tip jar where we could give them money or something coz it's not like I want to buy the actual paper as it's all papery, and paywalls just remove you from public debate, so yeah, a big "IF YOU LOVE US, SUPPORT US" button.

* For being a twat who turns up in comedy rap videos. Osama never did this.
