Budget Day

So, it’s budget day again. After getting the lead opinion piece in the Times yesterday, I was whisked into the BBC to discuss the hammering that the self employed once again got in this year’s budget.

It’s always interesting to see the BBC at work. What’s often terrifying for us talking heads and pundits, is another day at work for the presenters and crew. Forget your fears about how you look or sound, you’re sat down, interviewed, and it’s thanks very much.

Today was both TV and radio – I prefer the latter, having a face for radio. It’s also much more intimate – you and the presenter, as opposed to TV when there is always a crew involved.

I shall of course not be watching or listening. There is nothing worse than seeing yourself ‘perform’.
