Is this on iplayer yet? I can't find it.

Great, probably one of the most topical Scottish newsnights yet and they decide that this episode is not available online? Paranoid Scottish media must have nothing to do with this!!!

I watched and enjoyed. I generally agreed with Jonathan Davis, as you might expect, but felt that his incredulity at what he was hearing from the VI Labour lady blunted his own message. His voice went a bit high-pitched and the heated debate threatened to reduce the whole thing to just another punch up.

Perhaps FP is so exasperated with the government not being straight with the people- fair enough- but nobody mentioned the global nature of the crisis. Robert Crawford was the only one to come out of it with dignity fully intact, not surprising given his actual life experience of bringing large foreign investors to Scotland.

I actually think the VAT cut will help ameliorate the recession, though obviously it will only help a little. Government debt interest costs are unlikely to soar in the near future IMHO because where else would you want to put your money?

I suspect the decade ahead will bring boring, rather miserable but not completely dramatic stagnation, just as in Japan or Germany. People will be grabbing for their slice of the pie, but no-one will be able to pretend that everyone is getting a fair chance.

I recorded the whole programme via a WinTV gizmo. It's a huge datafile, whose transmission is not impossible but has presented some solvable challenges. I'm in contact with FP, who has been very patient with my technical inability to send the full .mpg file within a reasonable time.

I'm working on it. It's on its way to him, from the Heimat, one way or another.

Whichever solution works first, there will be an unedited file of the relevant studio discussion available for all quite soon, though it may take a day or two.

I'm not teasing when I say to HPCers that FP did well and that the clip really is a giggle for those of us contrarians who love to see VI/ZaNuLabour/Tory gobshite being politely, civilly, and accurately demolished in a couple of surgical strikes by someone who actually knows what the fuck he's talking about.

Watch this space; then watch the video; then judge for yourself.

shortly followed by FP telling is AS IT IS, Baroness whatsertits educated response is that he is not optomistic

By the way FP, as a matter of vested interest, when do you reckon we will have high interest rates, couple of years?

LT rates will rise within weeks. They will be high within months. They will fall then rise consistently into 2010 and beyond. They will be very high by 2011. Just a view. On verra.

LT rates? What LT abbreviation (having a blonde moment)

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.
