Just noticed that Paul Walter is on there twice and should count as a ‘2’. Sorry Paul.

I make that a poor show so far for Scotland, but then seeing how rarely we top the Golden Dozen and how widely read we are outside Lib Dem circles in Scotland is not that bad a relection on things.

No self-interest there, then, James…

Matt, when I started this I genuinely didn’t think I would stay at the top past Tuesday. It’s got quite embarrassing now…

Well, James, we could always ask Ryan for a quality vs quantity check. Seven out of how many?

You need me to answer that question for you. Don’t you have fingers and toes to work it out yourself?

He’s from Cambridgeshire. In Suffolk, we can do advanced mathematics…

Well, of course my maths is crap; I started life as an economist. But I think you misunderstand me. For instance you have (James) 9 posts so far this month which extrapolates to 216 a year and so far 7 are in 21-100 This is much better than LDV which has six hits out of thousands…

Okay Martin, I get you now. Sorry for confusion. I can probably calculate my hit-rate once the final 20 are published. That said, I suspect there will be ‘1’s in the long tail with a higher hit rate than mine.
