From the widespread coverage of the Papal visit to Scotland tomorrow, one of the more interesting journalistic contributions is likely to be from Martin Hannan, who, among other things, writes a column for the Edinburgh Evening News.
Speaking from 8.45am tomorrow, on BBC Radio Scotland, Hannan will reveal his memories from his time…. in Rome as a student priest.
He promises some characteristically forthright views.
He told allmediascotland: “There are a few journalists in Scotland who attended seminary, but I think I am the only one still working who studied in Rome and had access to the Vatican Library and who conducted tours of St Peter's Basilica for beer money. A year ago in my Evening News column I predicted this Pope would not get the same adulation as was given to John Paul II. Wish all my horse tips had been that good.”
