June Traffic Figures

This week has been a record week with more than 70,000 unique visitors, and the highest ever daily total of 14,727 on Thursday, beating the previous best of 12,298 the day after the local elections. June saw a record 396, 910 pageloads (388,935 in May) but a very slight decline in unique visitors of 222,474 compared to May's total of 231,901. The equivalent figure 12 months ago was 97,969. According to Google Analytics I now have 44,951 absolutely unique visitors, which means 44,951 different individuals read the blog at some stage during June.

Guido,

I understand all Labour MP's have received a briefing pack from Gordon containing a draft letter to be sent out to the constituents.

It would be fun to get hold of a copy of this letter asap as I am sure it has some typos in it that require amendment.

Hope you can assist.

Have you as one of my 'daily must reads' and would obviously appreciate a reciprocal link.

Enjoy Rwanda: East Africa is a fascinating place, despite the appalling poverty. Avoid the Bush Tucker, though. I got inveigled into eating porcupine in Cameroon: I like my food, but not that much!
