Another year over - overshadowed, of course, by 11 September. Did we really have an election? It seems so long ago. But indeed we did, so Astragal's personality of the year award must therefore go to Tony Blair.

A pity that the 'ministerial design champions' under Lord Falconer have not met since the election, but let's hope that changes in the New Year.
