I haven’t posted for a couple of days – I’m scared to in case David Torrance reads it. didn’t want to say anything on Thursday because I know the blog has a wide readership and the Electoral Commission said I might influence how people voted…
So instead I had an epic lunch with VERY famous music personality, so famous we both had to wear shades in the Merchant City.
Now, on a clear blue morning, I’m preparing for the drive to Skye for a Yes meeting in the Aros Centre – with Arthur Cormac, Ian Blackford, Jean Urquhart and Natalie McGarry who isn’t speaking to me after Hibs beat the Accies. I’m making a weekend of it with a wedding tomorrow, so I’ll be dancing during the Heinekin Cup and the Champions League but where better to be on a May Saturday than Sleat?
The Wine Club Platinum Loyalty cards have gone out for global dispatch. If you haven’t got one, it’s not too late – check out the Club Page next door. Apart from the international subscribers, and those at home – even London! Who’s George Osborne? – I’m proud of having members in Arran, Eigg, Lewis and Orkney. Where are you, Shetland?
By the way, did you notice how the BBC kept saying Farage had great publicity ahead of the vote. Who gave him that? He was never off the airwaves and that affects Scotland too where we share so much of the output and yet his party are pretty marginal here. This is another area where the BBC has to address its news judgment. Assuming UKIP scores well in this election, it will be massively because of the publicity given to him by the taxpayer via the BBC. Which also shows you how I crucial broadcasting is in our referendum.
There’s a voice saying we’ve got to leave now so wish me luck as I deliver a Tirade of Hate at the Skianachs at the Aros Centre 7.30.by
