Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Well we need  someone to fund a similar pro-EU research project, finding someone who will pay the range of multilingual researchers, isnt somewhere id even know where to begin.

i think you already did!
as tbg says below, ET has sorta started to do this.

except tink-tonks serve up ready-to-eat meals, we argue recipes in the kitchen.

the negative skew on the EU conditions brit public opinion, so now there's a reactive desire to counter that with snippets which can educate people to see the other side of the story.

very worthy, but the risk is that this t-t would be as skewed to the positive, which i repeat is necessary, but constrictive.

the work we do here hashing stuff out is more interesting than coming up with predigested soundbytes, but i see the propaganda value, though there's something off about it too, i guess because it's reactive, i dunno.

how do you stay impartial once you're branded as euro yes-men?

perhaps the anti EU sentiment sells papers because it's irrational, therefore man-bites-dog. in which case the calm voice of reason is going to be backpage news, like the rain forecast, it's a given.

people need truth, but they don't trust amen corners either...

can't make it add up somehow.
