Bumped by a Volcano


Things have been rather hectic over the past couple of weeks and I’ve done so many media things I’ve not had time to keep this page up to date. Until the Election is over that’s likely to continue to be the case.

But one amusing story – I got “bumped” by a volcano last week! I was literally in a cab on the way to a BBC studio to do an interview on the BBC TV News channel when I got a call saying the Icelandic volcano had squeezed everything else and they were cancelling. I’m not sure whether this is funnier, or not, than having an interview with Evan Davies on the Today programme cut short by their producers decision to insert an item about a talking teddy bear which supposedly said something controversial. The perils of what (usually jealous) American academics call being a “media tart”. Oh well.
