The shortest month of the year has been a record month for Cranmer, registering 25,771 unique visitors to his world-renowned blog of intelligent erudite comment upon matters religio-political, which increasingly appears to embrace all things religious or political.

Iain Dale’s Diary and ConservativeHome continue to be Cranmer’s top referrers, each referring in excess of 6000 people.
