This is a pretty lean awards category. David Cameron, in particular, largely eschewed detailed policy ideas - preferring grand themes. When it came to policy he chose the reverse gear - on tuition fees and the patients passport, for example. David Davis had a few ideas but they hardly captured the public imagination.
Joint second place will go to George Osborne and his belief in flatter taxation. He has set up a committee that will report in due course... Mr Osborne can share second place with David Davis' growth rule - an approach that would have cut taxes by £38bn over the course of a parliament.
First place must go to David Cameron's phonics policy - already accepted by the besieged Ruth Kelly. Fast work, Mr Cameron. This really is government by proxy and will help tens of thousands of children to read.
I'll post a few more awards tomorrow... in the meantime please complete the latest ConservativeHome survey...
