Look I know I said we should leave him alone, but the great Jeff just keeps coming back to haunt me. First, the celebrated Guido Fawkes manages to publish a post that actually sounds like Jeffrey Archer on speed, though, if anything, more self-promoting. And then Iain Dale, our other great political blogger, suddenly announces, 'Every few weeks I take a look at Jeffrey Archer's blog to see what he's been up to. It's rather good actually.' (My italics.) Finally, going back to the source, I discover that, after another alarmingly prolonged silence, Jeff has suddenly emitted no fewer than three posts, all, it goes without saying, classics of the genre. Jeff's blog, since you ask, is rated 2.6 millionth in the world, with traffic that is a fraction of even mine. Yet, somehow, it is so there, like Heidegger or Katchenjunga - vast, remote, inscrutable, known by all, yet approached by so very few.
