Speccie Hits a Million Online Readers as Staggers Still Obfuscates

Today the Speccie have hit a million unique users every month after their relaunch and redesign last year:


By comparison, Guido’s readership nowadays (excluding feed readers and app traffic) is about a third of that:

So come on then New Statesman, get your stats out for the wags.

Or are you still chicken?

      I’ve heard of it but cannot recollect ever looking at a copy of it in my life. Same goes for the other publication.

      I think I’ve heard of Guido’s blog though!

    Hasn’t the Grauniad devised some sort of scheme for them, that all hits to CIF are automatically sent to the Staggers

    England wins World Cup
    ENGLAND have basically won the World Cup.

    Fans and pundits say a 2-0 victory against Poland is essentially the same as winning the World Cup and beating all the other teams is now just a formality.

    TV football pundit Bill McKay said: “Beating Poland shows England can succeed at the highest level of international football, so we’ve won the World Cup. That’s just common sense.

    “There isn’t much point in holding the rest of the matches in Brazil in 2014 because FIFA are probably planning to give us the trophy as soon as they’ve put our name on and given it a polish.
    “To be honest, I had my doubts about whether England would ever win the World Cup again. Imagine how stupid I feel now!”

    England supporter Stephen Malley said: “When we won on Tuesday it was literally the best day in the history of the world since 1966. It definitely pisses on my wedding day or the birth of my children.

    “Me and my mates got a load of cans and partied all night with the Lightning Seeds at full volume, until someone threw a petrol bomb through the window.”

    Today England manager Roy Hodgson arrived at FIFA headquarters in Zurich to collect the trophy, but was told that a legal technicality required England to take part in, and win, the actual tournament.

    Hodgson said: “I’m hoping this can be resolved quickly, because we need the trophy for the victory parade on Saturday. Otherwise we’ll have to make our own with a tennis ball glued to a Pringles tube.”

    I took my five-year old childperson to Bilderberg for her birthday. It wasn’t as scary as we expected and she came away with a cute, if expensive, teddy bear called Harriet.

    Play it again Sam says:

    Guido gets less than 360,000 uniques – out of all the folk with a computer?

    Hardly worth tuning into them really. Something must have gone wrong somewhere. Maybe idiotic modding and mysterious disappearances of postings are a possible cause of such low readership.

Sarah Vine writes of Esther McVey…

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”

Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
