  1. Tim,

    you and your generation, you’ve hardly arrived and now you are on your way out.

    You need to lighten up and write about ‘cool stuff’. All this economics is soooooo yesterday. Get urban, get cool.

    Mr. Murphy on the Gerry and the Pacemakers, anyone?

  2. Presumably his angle would be that the private sector never produced any pacemakers so the NHS should give one free to everyone, and a Gerry to every third person.

  3. Or it could be, vis-a-vis the blogs you mention (save Mumsnet), that in the end of the day most people share your indifference to politicians and just aren’t very impressed by the comings and goings of the Westminster village.

  4. They must have seen your blog come up when they Googled for “vegamite”: Marmite is the same, right?


  5. I would guess that an average fashion magazine outsells the complete range of political ones from The Spectator to New Statesman, combined.

    Ergo it’s no surprise that Blogs catering to the same interests are big too.
