Is there anybody out there? Apparently, yes.
I wrote a post this morning on research that shows that interest in the EU among the British public is the lowest since 1988.
I just thought I’d quickly let you know that we’re not all blogging away for nothing. Apparently people are actually reading. First of all Josef Litobarski has been very vocal on the comments. Secondly, a website that he describes as the “most-read Eurosceptic blog on the internet” had this to say:
“This is the complaint of a blog called Think about it, which happily describes itself as:
A dynamic community of bloggers, journalists and journalism students, a forum alive with debate and discussion, a creative portal to inspire youth involvement with the 2009 Parliamentary Elections, brought to you by the European Journalism Centre (EJC).”
“The graph is from Ipsos MORI and the blog offers a number of reasons why interest should be so low. But the one thing it does not give us is perhaps the real reason – that the EU and anything to do with it is so utterly tedious, so low-grade, so mind-sappingly dull and devoid of vitality that the only sensible response is to wish it would crawl under a stone and die.”
I’m not sure what I can say in response to that. But thanks for reading.
