Guido’s favourite story this week was about Katie Myler, Ed Miliband’s chief spokesman, committing Twitter suicide by accusing the Prime Minister of “pimping himself”, whilst Guido was on on the phone to the Labour Leader’s office asking if Ed stood by his spokesgirl’s comments she twittered an apology and withdrew her remarks.
We were faster than the papers in going through the party election returns, identifying Labour’s unpaid bills from the taxpayer and the Tory Bambi killing expenditure first – pixels beating print yet again.
This week the blog had an above average 422,866 page views from 251,700 visits by 87,979 visitors. Including feed readers Guido had some 2.5 million hits in November, with student unrest related stories being the most popular and perhaps consequently the blog seems to have more earnest, angry, left-wing flavoured reader comments section, presumably from misguided students. The top 7 stories last week in order of popularity were:
- Why England Lost
- Do They Know They’re Born?
- Labour Source:“People Have Made Up Their Mind”
- Hound Dog Minister
- Moment Red Ed Became “Son of Brown”
- Coulson Unhappy with the Happiness Index
- Odd Couple : the Minx and the Basher
You’re either in front of Guido, or you are behind…
