Charity Logistics - a company that provides services for charities - challenged MPs to write a short light-hearted piece about the life on an MP. E-politix, which hosts MPs' websites, co-ordinated the competition.
50 MPs entered and Sir George was judged the winner for his piece - a spoof following press stories that football results could not be reported if one side won by too big a margin.
(The piece can be seen on the website under "On a lighter note" http://www.sirgeorgeyoung.org.uk/articles/newsitem.cfm?newsid=1713, along with other anecdotes)
"I am grateful to Charity Logistics for their generosity with the champagne - and also for the competition. Everyone knows politicians can be serious - it is important that people can see we are also human."
