Brussels Leaks

Unmasking the decision-making process

Going quiet – why?

We’re taking a slight backseat for the next few weeks to let the attention we’ve received calm down a bit. Don’t get us wrong, we enjoy the attention; some of us work in communications and media so turning down journalists, for instance, is heartbreaking

But it’s better to get the attention when it’s really deserved. This is about getting important information out there, not about BrusselsLeaks (or any other ‘leaks’ for that matter).

That’s why today we tweeted that we have decided to ‘go dark’ for a few weeks.

We’ve received a huge amount of correspondence in a few days including media requests, offers of help, advice¬† and a lot of good will. We’d like to send a great thanks to all of you. If you haven’t heard from us yet we are sorry and we will strive to get back to you soon.

So what is our plan now?

We’re looking through all the correspondence received and acting accordingly. We’re looking at the advice, the commentary and comments we’ve had and will use it to make us stronger. Anyone who has sent information, we’re investigating it. Anyone who offered their assistance, we’re looking into it.

Rome wasn’t built in a day.

We know there’s a big opportunity for improvement here and we’re doing our utmost to seize it.

We are also more certain than ever that BrusselsLeaks – or something like it – is needed to pull the shady inner workings of the EU system out into the public domain.

And please note: we’re still here and happy to receive any information you feel is important.

Thanks to @exiledsurfer
