This week’s @lesleyriddoch podcast is the one where we mention Borgen for the last time, for a while or at least until series 3 starts. We all went along to see Sidse Babett Knudsen at the Filmhouse on Sunday after the Monday Scotsman column had been filed. It was a fascinating Q&A session. But what does it mean?
Equally, after an interesting TV discussion about ‘Bedroom Tax’; we ponder what the Scottish Government could do ; especially in the light of Mike Dailly’s petition. Just when you might think this is new ‘news’; Lesley recalls a ‘Comment Is Free’ piece ; “How will social housing survive Tory cuts?” from June 2010. The CIH Scotland document Chris refers to is "Preparing for the Bedroom Tax and Beyond" - technical but still readable. This issue will run and run...we may return to it.
Finally, notwithstanding twists, turns and texts, there’s been a resignation. Really. It’s all go this week.
