I just noticed that the web counter at the bottom of the page is getting very close to the quarter of a million impressions mark. It doesn't seem that long ago that I thought that 10,000 was a good result!
There's been quite a jump in traffic over the last week and I'm wondering, now that I'm in politics, well sort of, whether I have been equally nice to everyone, children and small animals included and of course absolutely 'politically correct' in all my opinions. If not, then you can bet that I'll be reminded of any slips!
My electoral agent for Westgate is pictured above, so if you spot her, do come-up to register your support. And "Yes" I know it's a red coat and either it's a cunning disguise designed to confuse the opposition or they were out of Tory blue at the time.
Remaining with politically correct for a moment, you may recall that after the last election, I put my money on young David Miliband as the man to replace the' Dear Leader', Tony, rather than the dour, unsmiling, finger-nibbling Gordon Brown. I'm not alone in predicting a disaster for Labour in the local elections, Channel 4 News did last night, with a survey of leaders from Labour-run councils across the country. "We're doomed", said one.
No, I think that the disaster will be so truly awful, as everyone gets their chance to vote against the all pervasive political correctness and policy insanity that surrounds us, that Labour will need to think twice about Gordon and young David may yet be the best chance the party has once the charisma of Blair has departed the stage. After all, nobody can argue that the scowling Chancellor has charisma or even vaguely knows what it means.
Young Miliband did slip on a TV interview not so long ago, perhaps revealing his private opinion on the succession. You be the judge!
