Walking the Newsnight Tightrope
For those of you who missed Newsnight's report on the 'A' List, featuring an interview with your humble servant. Thanks to the guys at Biased BBC for uploading this onto YouTube. I admit to being extremely nervous about doing this interview because I feared accusations of 'sour grapes' and worse. It felt like walking a tightrope, but I felt I just had to speak up for the 400 or so colleagues who will have been feeling just as disappointed - if not worse - as me. As I say in the interview, I totally accept the referee's decision (unlike Tottenham Hotspur!) and I am genuinely not bitter about it, but I do think there are lessons to be learned from this process.
