Top British news moments in 2021 – from Trump’s social media ban to Tom Daley knitting – irish mirror online

Some of the UK’s top news moments in 2021 include Marcus Rashford’s campaign for school lunches, Donald Trump’s social media ban and Tom Daley’s knitting at the Tokyo Olympics.

The best single news of the year, however, was that the English men’s soccer team reached the Euro 2020 final, voted for by 21 percent of the 2,000 British adults surveyed.

Emma Raducanu, who won the US Open (20 percent), was also popular, as was Piers Morgan, who left the Good Morning Britain set (13 percent).

Other top moments of the year include Adele’s comeback, Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Manchester United, and the infamous Zoom meeting with Jackie Weaver and the Handforth Parish Council.

The poll was conducted before the Downing Street Christmas party scandal and was commissioned by Readly, a digital read-anything magazine and newsp -er  -p.

Behavioral psychologist Jo Hemmings said, “2021 was a year of great athletic moments that united the nation.

“Yet persistent public health problems, bizarre events and uncertainty have left many of us going through ups and downs and worries about what may come next.

“Challenges like working from home, limited social events, and fewer connections with friends and family were evident again this year.

“But one thing many of us have learned is to put our r -idly changing messages into ‘worry windows’ on a need-to-know basis – rather than watching news scrolling all day or being on social media.

“We can lower our stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol by listening to soothing music and immersing ourselves in a magazine or newsp -er of our choice that gives us both balance and joy and releases our reward hormone dopamine.

“It’s about self-care and forbearance in difficult times.”

In the study, Marcus Rashford was also named “Hero of the Year” and received 31 percent of the vote.

Closely followed by activist and environmentalist David Attenborough, followed by tennis ace Emma Raducanu in third place.

Musicians Adele and Ed Sheeran also made it into the top 10, as did Sky Brown, the 13-year-old Olympic skateboarder.

The villain of the year, meanwhile, was former US President Donald Trump, who was elected by a huge 44 percent of adults.

Second place went to Matt Hancock AND Meghan Markle – both voted by 33 percent of respondents – while 31 percent voted for current Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

The study also found that eight out of ten adults consider themselves “up to date” on current events.

But 37 percent of those who work from home admit they miss the “water cooler” moments to talk to coworkers over the news.

Respondents estimate they have five conversations a month about big news, while just under a quarter (23 percent) tend to share the top developments on social media.

When big news h -pens – for example, comedian Sean Lock who died in August – 12 percent heard the news from a television program.

More than one in ten (11 percent) looked for information on social media, seven percent read about it in a digital newsp -er or magazine or heard it on the radio.

And only three percent found out about it during a personal interview.

When it comes to topics Brits just don’t want to hear about anymore, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle topped the list – along with listening to Love Island.

Four out of ten respondents are fed up with hearing from YouTube personalities – and another third do not want to read anything about cryptocurrencies.

The study, conducted through OnePoll, found that 51 percent spent “too much” time “doom scrolling” reading endless negative social media comments this year.

Readly’s Chris Crouchman, which has 6,300 titles, said: “There has been a lot of interest in news in our portfolio of digital magazines and newsp -ers this year.

“The findings from the  -p show that people are also looking for inspiration and want to find out more about categories such as running, cycling and fitness, living and renovating, as well as TV, film and cinema.

“However, celebrity and entertainment remain the most widely read category among the British this year as well.

“While there are many topics our readers would like to read more about, there are certainly some that we are all quite ready to leave behind as we look forward to a fresh start in 2022.”
