First media interview in a while

Since the last day of Postwatch when I did three media interviews (see my blog posting here), I’ve not done any media interviews (Consumer Focus staff take them for the organisation). However, I did a short live interview this morning for BBC Radio Somerset.
The issue was the regulation of the Internet, a topic on which I have pronounced here. A group on Facebook has been encouraging people to fish in an area of Bridgewater where it is not allowed. Also a local party advertised on Facebook was shut down purely on the basis of comments posted by kids responding which stated that they ‘couldn’t wait to get drunk’.
Regulation of the Internet is not really within the remit of either Consumer Focus or the Communications Consumer Panel – the two bodies on which I currently sit – so I spoke to the BBC in a personal capacity and amusingly was billed as “an Internet expert”.
