Sunday's Politics Show
Many of my readers are Scots who live outside Scotland and wouldn't have had access to Sunday's BBC Politics Show when not one but two Scottish bloggers made their debuts. Andrew is Lallands Peat Worrier and his legal posts are always written with the layman in mind. He's been kind enough, on occasion, to explain to me certain points of law and I've appreciated his patience with a person who has had little contact with the law and intends to keep it that way.
But I have known for some time who he is because a reader of mine, who is herself an eloquent speaker and writer in her field, sent me this and suggested it was the Peat Worrier himself. We agreed. I've yet to hear if she considers that photograph does him justice, but I assume she will agree with me that it does not. As for his hair - I think it's fantastic. A short back and sides may beckon in 20 years time but I doubt it.
Second to appear on Sunday's Politics Show was the Burd. On Twitter the the evening before she was concerned about what she would wear and I think her choice was perfect. The questions posed were general rather than specific yet she was confident and positive in her responses. The only comment I would add is that she changes that dreadful image she has on the Scotsman because it reminds me of my fiery (yet so well respected) Primary headmistress. The Burd is but a lassie in comparison. She deserves a big pat on the back for entering a television studio, particularly one run by the BBC.
I'm not too surprised the BBC has finally acknowledged Scottish bloggers but I ask, 'Why has it taken so long?'
