FinancialGuy Writes!

About two weeks ago, this blog received a comment from Hanna at the European Journalism Centre. Would I like to take part in the competition at Think About It 5? The theme this time is water.

Well would I?

I gave it some thought and decided to have a go. Yes I would like to take part!

But how?

I have some understanding of water as a policy issue and have been fortunate enough to meet lots of experts in days gone by. If I want to take part, I want to either a) win or b) do something memorable that the Eurosphere will not forget in a hurry. My preference would be to do both.

Competing against such stiff opposition, as there now is on the Think About It platform, and doing so with elan will not be easy. Then, of course, there are all the other things that will take up my time and prevent me from spending much time on the platform.

So, do I have a rabbit up my sleeve? Can I do something so big that the Eurosphere will be moved up a notch? I think I can.

Expect something very soon…

  1. If my memory is correct, today is the final day of the competition. Clearly, I failed in my bullish aims. Don’t get me wrong, I am very pleased with the interviews I conducted, especially the first about Malta with Marco Cremona. That has actually been read far more frequently on both the Think platform and this blog than I would have expected. Great news.

    However, my really big aim for this competition was to interview a European Commissioner about water policy. I didn’t manage it, despite having a contact in a relevant press office. C’est la vie.

    To the best of my knowledge, a European Commissioner has never been interviewed by an EU affairs blogger, and I thought it would be cool to be the first. That honour is still up for grabs…
