Featured in Wales on Sunday!

I’ve been featured in a national newspaper! Well, Welsh national newspaper at least! Wales on Sunday’s Matt Withers column had a bit on the MP Coke survey I did a while back.
The full of text of the article is thus:
DAVID Cameron steadfastly refused throughout his successful bid for the Tory leadership to be drawn on whether heâ€™d ever taken coke. This reticence, however, appears to have spread throughout the House of Commons, with MPs unwilling to say whether they like Coke. Or prefer its rival, Pepsi. A blogger called James Oâ€™Malley decided earlier this month, for no apparent reason, to e-mail every single MP with the urgent request â€˜Do you prefer Coca-Cola or Pepsi?â€™. A grand total of 45 MPs found the time to respond, with around 80 per cent opting for Coke. Sadly, only one Welsh MP was willing to state his preference â€“ Rhondda member Chris Bryant is a Pepsi man.
No actual URL credited, but its better than nothing!
Is anyone Welsh reading? Does anyone have a copy of this newspaper in question (Presumably last Sunday)? Get in touch!
And for the sake of some extra backstory, the e-mail alerting me to my appearance was this:
Just thought I’d let you know we used your Coca-Cola survey in our paper (Wales on Sunday) this weekend – I’ve e-mailed you the pdf – your survey is bottom of page 8 on my widely-read column. Thought you might enjoy the glory, because you’re not getting any cash or owt…
I am indeed enjoying the glory! Thanks Matt!Post to: [ del.icio.us ][ Digg it ][ Furl ][ Netscape ][ Newsvine ][ reddit ][ StumbleUpon ][ Yahoo MyWeb ]
