Incidentally, 86 votes in this year's final, which is rather gratifying since last year's garnered 64 votes.

Top effort John, well done !

Congratulations John, well done. You have my address don't you? And that was Tanqueray by the way.

Congrats to Thesiger as well.

I put through the customary official call to John this afternoon to formally concede. He is a worthy winner and fought a great campaign. I let his people know that I pledge my allegiance to the John K flag over the coming period of his office and would be proud to serve alongside him in the BCB cabinet.

It'll be a pleasure to have you serve alongside me ;) When next you're in Dublin, I'll buy you a pint...

Congratulations to John K, a worthy winner. Also to Thesiger for an excellent list which many like myself no doubt struggled with voting against.

Thanks to Griff for organising this year's Cup, and I hope someone will step up to the plate if he is indeed considering retirement. It was a hugely enjoyable pastime for many of us over the past few weeks, and life will be a little more grey without daily participation in the Cup.

I am just going to review some of my favourite lists and matches, and enjoy some of the comments in this section which I have not been able to review because of time pressures. While playing some of the several new found favourites to which the 2010 Cup has introduced me.

Well done everyone!

You're a fucking arsehole and your list is a disgrace. The whole BCB 'Cup' is a bastion of mediocrity and cynical pandering to the worst tendencies in humanity. There won't be any proper rock music in ten years' time, and if anyone wants to know the reason why, they should read through this sorry-arsed 'competition' and they'll know good and true and proper just why that is.

Needless to say, I won't be participating next year.

Congratulations to both finalists. Sadly I omitted to vote in the final, but am reassured that it wouldn't have made any difference.

Thanks to Griff for his dedication and organization.
