A few of you might have seen me on the BBC Breakfast show this morning - I took part in a little five-minute slot with Duncan Hothersall. Since I started writing this blog a few years ago, I've been contacted four or five times about the possibility of going on TV or radio (two of those were from Argentina!), but it never led to anything. So it was a bit of a shock to my system to actually find myself on UK-wide television, trying to put the case for Yes just three days before the referendum, and up against an "opponent" who is a seasoned political activist and a very professional speaker. Just to make it even scarier, Duncan had Kezia Dugdale MSP with him - I'm not sure where my support staff had disappeared to! I'm happy to report that both Duncan and Kezia are very friendly in real life, and it's just as well I recognised Duncan from his photo, otherwise I'm not sure I'd have ever found the right place.
Ah well, I did my best - and you know you've temporarily hit the big time when Caron Lindsay is complaining about you being part of an "all-male panel" on the BBC! (It's a perfectly fair point, of course, but not my fault.) Unfortunately, I can't provide a link, because the Breakfast show isn't on the iPlayer.
