It's official – History is more interesting than Football

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/5139796.stm

According to a survey conducted on behalf of the History Matters - Pass it on Campaign, 73% of the population said they valued History, compared to only 48% for Football. Astonishingly, 69% of the respondants said that History is cool. As a (soon to be ex–) History student, I'm delighted by this. Not only is my choice of degree vindicated by such a large proportion of respondants to this survey, but I also finally have some kind of claim on coolness (if only a very distant one). I always knew people in this country had taste, and any remarks I may have made to the contrary on previous occasions (or may make in the future) are hereby disclaimed for the purposes of this entry.
