I keep an eye on the search terms that have been used to reach this blog. Some are rather esoteric and put in an appearance only once but some are clearly pertinent and repeated in one form or another on a fairly regular basis. Leaving aside the use of my name or the name of the blog, or variants thereof, the two posts that have attracted the most consistent attention over time are those that cover how the leader of the Conservative Party is elected and what happens in the event of the sudden demise of the Prime Minister. The former attracted a lot of views during the AV referendum campaign. The latter witnessed something of a flurry a few weeks ago. More recently, terms relating to Enoch Powell and the Powell lecture have been utilised on several occasions, which I find encouraging, and I presume a consequence of the repeats of the lecture carried over the summer on BBC Parliament.
I might add that I also keep an eye on the comments that are filtered into the spam file. There was a sudden upsurge a day or so ago. They vary from the gibberish to attempts to advertise particular products. It is always nice to see those that open ‘Wow, wonderful site’ even though they don’t mean it!
