An Interview with Shane Greer

On a blogging about blogging angle, there is a rather good little profile interview with Shane Greer over on the Tory Rascal blog. Shane is now the Executive Editor of Total Politics, having been a presenter on the 18 Doughty Street Internet TV station and involved with the Young Britain's Foundation.

I first met Shane a few years ago at Doughty Street, and I have to say he's an absolute natural on TV. Always sound and impeccably dressed - yet scarily very very tall. Sadly, I and the other half are not going to be able to make it to his wedding to Brittany in a few weeks due to parental commitments, but we with both all the best.

I have a feeling over the next few years Shane's media profile will continue to grow and he becomes a regular guest on other political programmes. He is very good at thinking on his feet under pressure, a skill that suits live television very well.

Shane also has a taste for good punky music and a sense of humour aligned with mine (although perhaps he might say mine is a little more extreme). As I say, expect to see him doing punditry on your screens and in print more over the coming years.
