I'm not going to rehash the whole debate about UKIP and the media right here. Suffice to say that the papers and broadcasters of this country have functioned heavily to push them to the forefront of our politics. The rise of Farage's party is about much more than the fall of journalism, but the two are certainly intimately linked.
The Euro elections are over, though. We can't do anything about them. What we can do something about is the coverage of the next big thing in the political cycle – a much more momentous event: the Scottish referendum. And if we couldn't trust the London media to cover European elections sensibly, we certainly can't trust it to cover the referendum in any kind of grown up way.
At the core of the crisis of the media is money. As long as papers are owned by wealthy proprietors, they will tend to reflect the interests of the wealthy. To put it bluntly, if you don't pay for your news and your analysis, someone else will. Someone rich. And what they are paying for is access to you - to shaping your opinions and beliefs.
So, with that in mind, we have a week to go until the end of our appeal for the OurKingdom Scottish debate. We're never on our own going to be an answer to the problem of media coverage, but we can help, in our own way.

Thank you ever so much.
