INTERESTING?

A few minutes ago I chanced to look 'backstage' at the blog to see where we were being accessed from at that point of time.   Here is the list by country in order of viewing numbers ....

Australia
84
New Zealand
47
United States
14
Sweden
6
Norway
4
Germany
3
Poland
2
Russia
2
France
1
United Kingdom
1

Oz at 1 is just a tad surprising (especially considering the time of day) but when I looked at the figures for the 24 hour period they drop back to second place behind NZL .

Obviously No Minister is at the cutting edge of political comment. Forty Seven, that surprises me I had no idea it would be that popular. I blame Adolf.

I see there are couple of Russki's in the mix. How about an in depth analyse of the Ukrainian situation Veteran, just to dig them out. I suspect that they are a part of Putins "paid to surf the net and comment mob" They are becoming a nuisance on web.

Last year, The Atlantic wrote about how the Russian government apparently pays people to "sit in a room, surf the Internet, and leave sometimes hundreds of postings a day that criticize the country's opposition and promote Kremlin-backed policymakers."

This practice isn't new as the Guardian UK have noticed and commented on this in the past. It is designed to stifle open discussion about political issues in Russia, giving a louder voice to those who support the Kremlin.

However as Ukraine will be a keyword they will already be waiting in anticipation eagerly licking their pencils. It will get us off the Muslim roundabout for while.

I was surprised to see the low numbers from the UK until I figured GCHQ were probably routing out of Oz anyway - which explains all the numbers..

Egbut ... don't think I'm overly qualified to comment on Russia vs Ukraine. Churchill's 'is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma' jibe is probably a good starting point for Russia as is Stalin's 1932-33 'Holodomor' (read deliberate starvation) of the Ukraine which led to between 2.5m and 7.5m deaths (depending on which authority you accept).

No love lost there.
