I will be doing an interview with Danny Morrison on Periscope today at 12.15 pm. Looking back at the Westminster elections. Here’s your chance to ask question…
Is it safe to come out now?The election coincided with a very busy time for me . Isn’t it always the way that when the political world is in mayhem and pundits are jabbering away while acres of newsprint are being scribbled out and the experts are dissecting the results, while my head is […]
