Recently I received a tweet from someone who had been watching me on TV. He felt I didn’t appreciate the concern over BskyB’s bid not being referred to Ofcom.
I informed him that it had been and gently tried to make the point that the public weren’t concerned about Ofcom because very few of them knew what Ofcom was or what it did.
A poll of 2,000 young people in this morning’s Times found that 33 per cent didn’t know that eggs came from hens and 36 per cent didn’t know that bacon came from pigs.
I am confident about my Ofcom point.
