Mr Sheridan appeared on Simon Mayo’s radio 5 live show today. I was travelling from Aberdeen back home (having managed to infuriate a legal audience by slipping two (atrocious) poems into a discussion of the law of acquiescence – not so much poetry in motion as McGonagall on roller skates) and heard the whole interview. He trotted out many of his usual mantras although neglected to mention the burning of Tommy Sheridan effigies referred to half a dozen times in his Newsnight interview the other night (well, the remake of the wicker man is on the way and Neil La Bute has to garner publicity somehow). Anyway, there was one interesting comment. Tommy stated that if the stories about him were true then Gail would not have left him but remained, and been very disappointed in him. Mayo asked him about this a couple of times and the line remained couched with the caveat that she wouldn’t have gone to court in his support. Not yet picked up by the Scottish media but I suspect that these comments will provoke some interest later in the week.
Anyway, I’m off on holiday from this evening for a week or so. For my loyal reader (you know who you are) normal service (ie moans about television and Sheridan updates) will resume in mid-September.
