A week ago or so now, I got into an engaging discussion with someone on Twitter regarding the Spanish PM’s text message SPAIN IS NOT UGANDA and unbeknowest to me the BBC was watching
I remembered the words of a good friend- NO ONE SAYS NO WHEN THE BBC CALLS and I wasn’t going to!
A phone call later and it was all decided I was to appear as a panelist on BBC WORLD HAVE YOUR SAY programme to discuss that text message
Here is how I got on, start watching at 24 minutes

Ida–you did a fabulous job on the program. And how amazing to think that a simple tweet could have such an impact!

Indeed Angela. One literally never knows who is reading one’s tweets. A real privilege for me!
