Paul Dale nominated for Midlands Media Awards’ Blogger of the Year

🕔05.Jun 2014

We’re happy to note that our Lead Blogger, Paul Dale, has been nominated for Blogger of the Year ahead of the Midlands Media Awards.

The Awards “will recognise and reward the very best local and regional journalists, broadcasters and photographers and will deliver an outstanding event celebrating the diversity of the media throughout the Midlands.”

Paul’s insight and analysis have rapidly made Chamberlain Files the region’s leading source of political intelligence, analysis, comment – and gossip. Paul is one of the most respected political journalists in regional media having covered politics in the Midlands for 26 years and deserves particular credit for his ability to seamlessly transfer from print to the digital medium.

Paul has written some of the most significant stories of the year, including:

– Birmingham children’s services boss Peter Duxbury quits hot seat after 15 months
– ‘There’s no Muslim plot to radicalise Birmingham schoolchildren’, insists city council chief executive
– Why the lady is for mourning
– Children’s social services ‘in meltdown’, claims Labour city councillor

His reporting and analysis of the local political scene make his posts a must read.  He has the trust of politicians and officers across a range of public bodies and has secured exclusive interviews with many leading figures, such as his interview with Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls when he first revealed his doubts about HS2 . His analysis and commentary, for example on the crisis in the Council’s children’s social services department and the Trojan Horse revelations, are unrivalled. Meanwhile, he has earned a deserved status as the foremost rubbish correspondent in the city, with a deep insight into the city’s controversial refuse and recycling service.

We hope Files readers will give Paul their full support. You can find him on twitter @paulmdale or occasionally hiding under Mr Chamberlain himself.  Mr Dale has promised to leave his out-of-Birmingham Dacha to make a special appearance at the evening event.

The full list of nominations can be found here.

Tickets for the ceremony are now available at and this year’s event will take place on Thursday 5 June at The Holte Suite, Aston Villa Football Club.
