Of the 1,706 search engine terms used to tune into the Opening Ceremony issue at The Slog over the last 24 hours, some 46% used the specific terms ‘left wing/left wing bias/left wing rubbish/biased pc/biased liberal’ as their search descriptor.

So those who unfollowed me on Twitter today, no – it wasn’t just me.

While I accept that the sample was by definition self-selecting (and the Slog is demographically biased over 45 years of age) this would tend to suggest that mature Britain had a problem with Danny Boyle’s view of history.

Clearly, we’re just all too old, stupid and bigoted to know any better. Perhaps it’s time we were put down. Even more than we are already.
