Losing by a whisker

Tomorrow’s Tottenham Journal, already out on-line, carries a story about this year’s winner of the Beard Liberation Front's (BLF) annual tongue-in-cheek Beard of Haringey Awards. Unfortunately, so it would seem, I lost by a whisker! Congratulations to Cllr. Isodorus Diakides (Lab, Tottenham Green), this year’s winner. Other runners up included, Peter Budge (Green), Cllr. Sheik Thompson (Lab, Tottenham Hale) and Cllr. Richard Wilson (Lib Dem, Stroud Green).

My beard was described as a “tidy goatee” whilst Cllr. Wilson’s beard was described as “shaggy”...
