Up to the Arts Centre at lunchtime, this time for a slot on the BBC's Politics Show.
First time round in February, I was given a grilling by the formidable Richard Moss. This time, the piece took the format of a debate between myself and Yes campaigner Stuart Hill, moderated by Mark Denten. With the time available cut and then cut again as a result of the national element of the programme over-running, however, our contributions were pretty brief.
We were given a strict 30 seconds each to present our respective cases, and unforgiveably, I had to be cut short. Stuart stayed within his time slot, but only by reading his text from under the table - I'm not best placed to judge how that came across. In the ensuing melee, I just wanted to communicate two of our key themes; that elected Mayors cost a shed-load of money, and that they concentrate power in the hands of a single individual.
I was certainly happy was with the introductory film. I don't know who is masterminding the Yes campaign, but having Shirley Winters, described in the film as a Yes campaigner, complaining about crossings in the Pedestrian Heart seemed pretty small beer to me when considering the enormity of the decision we will take as a Borough on Thursday. In contrast, I thought Martin Swainston came across really well. It was also great to see the clip of Lady Godiva with a straggling line of Yes campaigners again - it nicely framed the image of the Yes campaign as a few people doing strange things in the Market Place.
Is Darlington ripe for a Soviet-style revolution, as the film was asking? We'll find out on Friday when the votes are counted.
