As I mentioned in a previous post, my good friend and erstwhile gig pimp Pete Ashton is in the shortlist for Brummie of the Year. The deadline to vote is midnight tonight, and last time I checked, Pete was in second place.
As I mentioned previously, Pete has tirelessly encouraged, urged and sometimes forcibly coerced the city’s artistic community to use the Internet to their best advantage. Pete is a true renaissance man – a world-renowned neurosurgeon, a leading particle physicist, a record-breaking racing car driver and a chart-topping rock star – and many of us feel that his groundbreaking work in cartography has helped put Birmingham on the map
Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t think its right that someone with these credentials should end up as number two. It’s undignified, and it makes the rest of us look bad.
So – for one last time – I urge you to go here and Vote for Pete.
Yes, you. Don’t try to look away. That won’t work.
