Has been, actually. We now have three genuine contenders for the BBC Sports Personality who've all broken new ground for Brits. Each of whom is a fork in the eye to the middle-England tory establishment:
Bradley Wiggins (Tour de France & Olympic gold; born in Belgium to an Aussie father)
Mo Farah (5000m & 10,000m double; Somalian refugee)
Andy Murray (US Open, Wimbledon final & Olympic gold; dourest Scots Presbyterian this side of Dalglish)
But we'll still give it to Jess Ennis 'cos she's fit and has nice abs.
