About 25 hours ago, Conservative MEP Daniel Hannan posted onto YouTube the video of speech he delivered yesterday afternoon in the chamber of the European Parliament in Strasbourg, during which, for want of a better phrase, he well and truly monstered Gordon Brown.
As soon as I saw it, I also posted the clip onto our PlayPolitical site and just a day later - with a little help from a Drudge Report link - nearly 80,000 over 260,000 (as at 10pm Wednesday) over 575,000 (as at 6.30am Thursday) people have watched it, making it the most viewed YouTube clip in the world today.
I have known Daniel for a decade and apart from being a robust eurosceptic who is fluent in a number of languages, he is an extremely articulate Conservative. His exposure on the web over the last 24 hours will have won him some new fans, and I imagine that they, like those of us who have known of his abilities for rather longer, would join me in hoping the party makes the best use of those talents in the months and years ahead.
You can relive yesterday's speech again below.
