The scorecard today for the Beard Liberation Front’s 2013 Beard of the Year award reads:
Francis Wheen 53.64%
Jeremy Paxman 13.93%
Gareth Malone 10.6%
Russell Brand 6.66%
Fancy that, Russell Brand rating as the mark of the beast. The online polling booth closes tonight, I think, New Zealand time. So vote here to make sure that the best beard wins. Do the right thing – vote Wheen.
