A Million Page Views !

I'm not really big on the trumpet-blowing. Even with bloggers I admire I cringe somewhat at the sidebar testimonials (unless they're funny of course). Good wine needs no bush, inshallah.

But I'm pleased to have hit a million views, having started tracking in May 2004. 750,000 unique visits so it'll be a while yet before the really big marker is reached. The blog seems to be holding steady at around 5,000 weekly uniques. I can remember how pleased I was when it first got a hundred visits in a day.

Thanks for visiting.

Thank You for having us kind sir.

Do we get a slice of cake to take home with us?

Or a small present?

Seriously, thanks for your sterling efforts, I hang around here on a daily basis.

One of the best blogs around. And for the first year or two I thought Laban Tall was your real name.

You are always first on my list of daily blog visits, and I'm never disappointed.

Congratulations, and here's to the next million hits!

One of the best LT.

Finger on the pulse with a quiet thoughtful style. You come across as a real gentleman.

Thanks for the education.

Quite seriously, Laban or whatever your real name is, you would make a great newspaper columnist. The research is there, the evidence, the long view - geez, don't wanna embarrass you, but I salute you.

Any chance of a bit of optimism every so often, though?

Anyone remember your post asking for information about the alleged QPR shooting in 2005? Thanks for no hat-tip.

No, thank you for the site!

Laban,

Have long enjoyed the blog - so much so, I once tried to get you on Question Time. I think this impressive news strengthens the case. Particularly given how arse-achingly dull the show has become.

Keep it up!

I'm another admirer. You have an independent and enquiring mind, so different from the 'left-on' opinionators we have put up with in the MSM. How I'm sick of their emasculated pretentiousness, their sycophancy to the political doctrines and slogans du jour, and their willingness to betray every English value to maintain their place in the malign conspiracy known as NU-Labour.

Congratulations! We desperately need more of your sort. But why have I been under the impression that you are a woman since I started reading your blog? From a fellow native of Worcestershire.

I'd like to add my congratulations to all the others. UK Commentators is right at the top of my 'politics' bookmarks folder and I check it every day. Well done Mr Tall.

Thank you. I'll be celebrating in the old Malthouse tonight with Jan Coggan and Mark Clark. That new bailiff, Gabriel somebody, is going to play the tin whistle for us.
