Andrew Cadman: Bogbrush wins for nominating Cumberbatch for the Virtue Signaller of the Year Award


TCW is pleased to reveal the winners of its Virtue Signaller of the Year Award.

Best in Category

Charity: Camilla Batmanghelidjhthe “high priestess of questionable charity”

Media: Jon Snow – so right on he can’t look left, or is that right?

Politics: Angela Merkel – even Call Me Dave can’t compete with someone who intends to change the demography of an entire continent forever in a way that is about as sensible as injecting cancer cells into your bloodstream.

Performing Arts: Benedict Cumberbatch – you will never be able to enjoy a West End performance ever again without the nagging fear your evening will be ruined by some demented Virtue Signaller. Well done, Ben.

Academia: Mcebo Dlamini. No, Mcebo, Rhodes must not fall.

 Each of the winners will receive a year’s supply of TCW purified dopamine, to be taken whenever these hopeless addicts feel the compulsion to signal their virtue.


TCW Reader’s Award

The award is given out to the best nomination received from our readers, based not only on the quality of the nominee for their Virtue Signalling efforts but also the explanation given.

On that basis, the winner is…

Bogbrush, for his excellent nomination of Benedict Cumberbatch below.

“I think you have to go outside politics – they are, after all, vote-seeking machines of no fixed opinion anyway.

“You have to look for signalling of special quality; the great virtue signaller imposes it on other people who are thereby signalled into inferiority; it should be as public as possible; it should carry the impression of personal sacrifice, perhaps being made at some ‘cost’ or inconvenience (which it will not, of course, that’s the skill of the truly great virtue signaller); and if possible it should involve berating the people you’re signalling to because, well, they’re just not virtuous enough to be as angry as you.

“Therefore, my vote goes to Benedict Cumberbatch for his post-Hamlet rants. The new benchmark in using real grief for personal aggrandisement.”

Congratulations to Bogbrush on winning a TCW Bottle of Champers!

The two runners up are: Politically_Incorrect (Jon Snow). And Earthenware (Zoe Williams). Each will receive a bottle of wine.


Once again, we thank all our readers for their considerable efforts in making the TCW Virtue Signaller of the Year Awards a considerable and highly amusing success and wish them all a very happy (and small ‘c’ conservative) New Year.

Who knows, maybe the TCW Virtue Signaller Awards will return?
