Just a quick note to say that yesterday, in the furore surrounding the Conservative Party potentially threatening to take the UK out of the European Court of Human Rights and Angela Patrick’s post on secret trials, the UK Human Rights Blog surpassed an all-time total of two million hits.
The blog was launched on 31 March 2010 and is written by members of 1 Crown Office Row barristers’ Chambers. It is now attracting around 100,000 page views per month and has thousands of subscribers across email, Facebook and Twitter. If you haven’t already, you can subscribe for free by email, Twitter or Facebook – more details here.
I am glad that we crossed the threshold with the two posts mentioned above, as both are representative of the kind of features which I think epitomise the purpose of the Blog: to provide a clear, non-hysterical (we hope) and accessible view into the complex world of UK human rights law. I am proud of the influence the Blog now has in the debate, and I hope it is generally positive.
Thank you as always to my co-editors Rosalind English and Angus McCullough QC, as well as the fantastic and wide ranging group of authors, commenters and readers. As is traditional, below is the up to date list of our all time best read posts:
