… We’d say a big thank you to the 49,916 ‘absolute unique visitors’* who read Liberal Democrat Voice in June.
Though that’s way down on our May 2010 figure of c.136,000, that was an exceptional month – with a general election plus the formation of the new coalition government. In fact, compared with June 2009, Lib Dem Voice’s readership is up by one-third.
This brings our absolute unique visitor readership for the last year to date (1 July 2009 – 30 June 2010) to 582,154, over 80% higher than the equivalent figure for 2008-09 of 322,654.
The 5 top-read stories during the month were:
1. The easy, progressive way to cut £44 billion without harming worthwhile public services or the least well off (78) by Mark Pack
2. The Budget: so, what did you make of it? (218) by The Voice
3. Vince Cable: Why the VAT rise had to happen (139) by Vince Cable MP
4. So, what does a Special Adviser do? (18) by Duncan Brack
5. David Laws: should I stay as an MP? (75) by Mark Pack
