A few hours ago, I was whisked off to a top secret location in the arctic tundra (or, by the wonders of modern technology, "Glasgow") to be interviewed by the brilliant Vince Docherty for Independence Live's Thursday Conversations series. You can see most of it HERE - the first few minutes are missing due to a technical hitch, but the full recording will apparently appear on YouTube in a couple of weeks. The discussion mostly focused on polls, but it also briefly covered the impact of Syriza's triumph in Greece.
In the interests of sheer vanity, by the way, can I just point out that my hair loss is not quite as severe as it appears in the video - the light was catching me at a very unfortunate angle!
Apparently it's a weekly tradition that they finish the evening by having soup, which I can report was absolutely delicious. A post-soup group photo may well be appearing on Facebook, I gather.
And earlier in the day, I went to see First Minister's Questions for the first time. Our local MSP Jamie Hepburn had reserved some tickets for SNP members, so I thought I might as well take the opportunity to go. He also very kindly arranged a tour of the building, which was excellent, but left me more confused than ever about the "hidden meanings" of some of the architectural features. Is it really possible for something to be simultaneously a hammer and a curtain? (Or a leaf and an upturned boat?)
