    Featured in Wales on Sunday!
    February 28th, 2006 at 18:10

    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 he’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 O’Malley decided earlier this month, for no apparent reason, to e-mail every single MP with the urgent request ‘Do you prefer Coca-Cola or Pepsi?’. 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 – 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!
