Who's afraid of swine flu?

The Irish, apparently, as according to a eurobarometer poll on all things H1N1, some 68% are very or somewhat concerned that it 'may develop into a serious risk in my country'. 

Hidden in their alpine fastnesses, the Austrians and the Swiss are the most blasé, with 73% not concerned.  We err on the side of panic, with 55% concerned, compared to an EU average of 41%.  Elsewhere, some 16% of Maltese think it 'very likely' they will catch it.

It would appear that we are a trusting bunch, as 80% of us trust the Ministry of Health (or whatever it is called this week) to tell us the truth about H1N1.  Latvians and Poles are a good deal more cynical, at 40% and 45% trust levels.

The Governmental (with obvious emphasis on the 'mental') need to have everyone believe that they both know what they are talking about, as well as doing something, anything, about the problem is the Achilles heel of this useless Labour Regime.

As I posted on my own little site,, its all down to how you tell it!
