This is a short except from a longer conversation I did with Pat Kane on Saturday morning on the Opening Ceremony (ie, before it fades from memory).
Pat’s view is generally positive (“a triumph for creative London”) we started off with a short conversation on Danny Boyle’s successful tableaux for the opening ceremony, not least where it leaves independence seeking ‘celts’ like himself…
If you are puzzled by where all this generosity towards Britishness from an advocate of Scottish independence is going, I recommend you pick up the longer version here (with all the impromptu happens along the way bared to the digital universe):
