BRITAIN cannot hear enough about the Syrian conflict and has urged the media to report it in greater detail.
A survey, commissioned by newspapers concerned that people were getting bored with the last months blanket coverage, has found that the exact opposite is true and everyone’s hungry for more.
Wayne Hayes, form Stevenage, said: “When Britain ruled itself out of military involvement, I was up all night worrying that the media might think Well, its none of our business now, and cut reporting on Syria.
“Thank God they didn’t, and in fact used it as an opportunity to step up the column inches and airtime given to this endlessly rewarding story.”
Though there are plenty of other countries currently massacring their own people in Africa and Asia, its Syria that remains Britains favourite 24-hour rolling news event.
Middle East expert Jane Thompson said: “The British people have always been fascinated with Syria: Syrian music in our charts, Syrian soap operas on our TVs, and what English schoolboy couldnt give you a blow-by-blow account of the thrilling Battle of al-Mazraa?”
Joseph Turner, from Kilmarnock, said: I am completely into Syria. Im a bona-fide Syriahead. I cant get enough of the complicated diplomatic negotiations between the US and Russia. Who can?
“I honestly havent been this much into a countrys crazy civil war since Afghanistan.
“What happened there, by the way? I kind of lost interest.”
