According to the ABC circulation figures, the Western Fail is in terminal decline. I've taken the graph below from their report (.pdf!). And as you can see it's only going one way.

So why then, with the Western Fail readership in such a terminal decline do so many Welsh nationalists still buy it? Less than 1% of the people in Wales buy it, 0.84% to be exact using the ABC figures and the latest Census figures. In fact to make that number even easier to digest it works out as 1 in 118 people is a Western Fail buyer. The number amongst nats must be far higher because all I see on blogs, facebook and twitter is posts and links to their nasty site and references to their rag.
So please, let's stop buying the paper, let's stop visiting the website and let's watch it die. By keeping on giving them money we are only extending the inevitable.
Page rank stats for FailsOnline can be found here. It has a lower readership than it's offline rag, hopefully this number will fall steadily too.
