The second surprise was that Tom Watson MP has replaced Iain Dale as the top referring website, an indication that perhaps his traffic is either eclipsing Iain’s or that he writes about Guido more. Hard to say.
Best Man at a wedding this afternoon, so no blogging…
Consider the blog to be in Beta version…
…he has an official effectively acting as his blogging assistant who does about 10 hours work a month at a cost of £300. Now if that was equated to a full time equivalent that would be say 40 hours a week at £30 an hour for 52 weeks which is a whopping £62,400 salary.
This proves Guido’s oft made point about politicians and their alleged desire for an interactive online conversation with the public, they only want agreement and consent, not dissent. How enjoyably childish of Miliband.
“No government is a way of life. No government means to trust your friends. I know who I am, and you know who you are. If everybody knew what they wanted, There’d be nothing, nothing left. People would do what they wanted, And there’d be no government.”
- The hosting of this blog is now on Google’s backbone and anything other than http://www.Order-Order.com is likely not to work.
- Back to the perennial comments policy: there has been too much discussion of policy and politics in the comments of late, some über-bores even discussing history. It is not entertaining in the least, this blog is about political tittle-tattle and gossip (on a good day).
- If you want to bore on about policy or tell people which way to vote try Comment is Free, ConservativeHome or LabourHome. Comments policy fully reviewed here.
- One more moan, this isn’t the Reuters website, it doesn’t cover everything, Guido aims for about three stories a day, is usually (hopefully) drunk on Friday afternoons and takes weekends off. So stop whinging about the limited editorial choices.
