It is the time of year for award ceremonies and the like but this post is simply to recognise the excellent results of two posts last week by Brussels Blogger.
The posts relate to SWIFT and information “sharing” between the EU and US – a subject that we all ought to be concerned about for both civil liberties and democratic reasons.

Brussels Blogger emailed me over the weekend and said,

In fact, over the course of 6 days, his traffic was:
For those of us with an EU blog, you’ll know that this is an excellent set of numbers with some great blog syndication.
Congratulations!!Author : Stuart Langridge
