The Exile welcomes all the new readers
The Exile is receiving more hits than we have ever had before, thanks to Neil Clark's link to us from his Guardian article. Let's hope that some of you like what you find and want to return.
It is certain that his article, and the victory in the Blog Awards which inspired it, have set the wankblogs a-squawking. They want to set the agenda and fantasise that their views are those of the British mainstream. However, as they found out when they tried to bring over 20,000 Iraqi collaborators into the UK, their views are about as far from the mainstream as it is possible to get. It's at times like that when even quite small blogs can have an effect out of all proportion to their size.
Hopefully, Neil's victory and the resulting publicity, will serve to not only bring more people to our respective blogs, but will encourage others to take up the blogging game.
Welcome one and all.
