In the last two days I’ve had a lot of traffic on my blog – well it’s all relative I know, but far more than usual.
Is this because I’ve upped my game and started writing eloquent and incisive prose ? or because I’ve hit some important political nail right on the head ?
No it’s because last February I posted some silly (ish) pictures of William Hague (who’s almost exactly the same age as me and has bugged the life out of me ever since I was a schoolboy – cringing as he wowed the Conservative Party conference). On reflection it was a little childish of me – but I didn’t say anything untoward about him. I just let the pictures speak for themselves.
Now William Hague is in the news because of ill-informed gossip on political blogs. So what does every one do ? They Google “William Hague” in Google Images, and head off to my blog.
Meanwhile virtually no one has read my last two blogs.
So to cut out the hard work, instead of writing a new post, I thought I’d republish the pictures – and generate a bit more traffic.
While I’m at it I’d just like to say that I think William Hague has been treated appallingly over this episode, and I believe that he has nothing to reproach himself for. That is all. Enjoy the pictures. And come back and read my more thought provoking articles at some point in the future
