Scouting and the media

It’s been sad to see this month that despite being 100 years old, and an event involving 50000, bringing together the youth from almost every country on the planet (pause while you imagine the enormity of that situation) Scouting hasn’t warranted the slightest bit of attention from our media.

Sure BBC Essex and News 24 have been fantastic, the reporter on Look East seemed like he’d paid attention and knew what he was talking about, rather than parrot the dodgy received wisdom that for most counts for knowledge of a cornerstone of our culture.

I mean there are 28,000,000 scouts worldwide, surely that makes our centenary significant?
