Some of you will know that I am an avid Radio 4 listener- in particular the Today programme. I know this is incredibly sad, but sometimes I feel happy at waking up early so I can listen to it!!!!

Between Christmas and New Year the Today programme has famous guest editors, and a couple of days a go it was Mervyn King, the ex-Bank of England Governor. I found him most interesting to listen to. Incredibly clever and deep… perfect.

Thanks for listening
