Today’s exciting statistic

The Liberal Democrat blogosphere’s very own Alex “Brevity” Wilcock has recently pointed out that he says “err” quite a lot.

Well, my fingers have been busy counting this evening.

I have been digesting the YouTube video of him speaking at the Brighton Conference blogging awards.

He spoke for 558 seconds and said “er” 71 times. That’s once every 8 seconds.

Just thought you’d like to know.

(And please don’t do this count on me.)
