Da Fink’s New Blog Surges Ahead

According to industry data, The Times’ Comment Central had more traffic than Guido last month. Guido takes consolation from the fact that Danny and his team may now have the most popular British political commentary blog, but Guido’s blog is still the most popular in Britain. US traffic boosts Da Fink’s numbers – as do his occasional (see above) forays into political humour.

Guido has been telling Iain Dale for months that our blogospheric ascendancy could not last, but it must be demoralising for all those earnest leftie bloggers that the new popular blog is once again from the right. The idea that it is merely because oppositionism is populist strikes Guido as muddle-headed. If that were true the LibDems would surely have a top-ranked blogger.

Part of the reason is that the editorial is superior, ConservativeHome and Comment Central are both tightly edited and on the ball, Iain has more newsworthy gossip than say Recess Monkey. Both Iain and the Monkey are wannabee MPs loyal to their party, but Recess‘ humour is hampered by a lack of attention to the mainstream news agenda and the constraints of having to be politically correct.

Has anyone got a convincing explanation as to why Britain’s four most popular political blogs come from a Cameroonie sympathiser, a libertarian, a Thatcherite and a Christian conservative?
