In search of a European identity

Time magazine

I had rather hoped that when words of mine first appeared in Time magazine they’d either be as a quote from me as “Man of the Year” or at least paid at NUJ standard rate. Apparently not. Ta to Tim Worstall for the explanation as to why, anyway. (I mean, you know – I’m just a blogger, aren’t I? It’s not like my day job is in the editorial department of a respectably-sized magazine. It’s not as if I’ve been writing professionally for several years. It’s not as if I’ve had two books published. It’s not as if my email address is readily available on this very page… Grrr…)

Attribution, people. Attribution. It’s not much to ask.


  1. Bah. Seems especially strange since Andrew Sullivan gave you proper credit on his site when he initially posted the comment.

    One wonders if his article was run through the Time editorial meat-grinder so as to make it easier to digest. Besides, they can't give those pesky bloggers too much credit…

  2. You should email Sully and give him a proper bollocking.
