UK Blog Charts Released

So more of you are reading BBC Blogs and Comment is Free this month (whereas for most of July Guido was thrashing the Guardian’s CiF). People are always claiming that right-wing bloggers dominate the blogosphere, well to Guido it looks like the two currently leading UK blogs are left-wing blogs written by multiple authors. The next two most popular blogs are written by right-of-centre individuals. Why? Not sure, no doubt students of media studies will explain.

Quote of the Day

Writing in this week’s Spectator Diary, the former Chancellor and Evening Standard editor attempted to encapsulate how Boris operates…

“My children have the measure of our prime minister. A couple of years ago, my son and I went for a lovely Sunday lunch at his house in Oxfordshire — where he has a Kalashnikov mounted on the wall. Boris suggested we play a game. A tug of war, but with a difference. The rope is tied around your waist and the contest takes place across a swimming pool. If you lose you end up in the water, fully clothed.

That’s Johnson for you: fun, inventive but ruthless. I suspect his brother Jo had one ducking too many.”
