Earlier this year, I was invited to make a film for the BBC's Daily Politics Show on guide dog access in the UK. As those who know me will appreciate, I had to carefully balance the benefits of highlighting this important issue with the possible perceptions it could create - but in finality, I decided that although I am not a disability rights campaigner, I do work with a guide dog, and there is an unacceptable difference in the way I am treated in Westminster, to shops and hotels just a few miles down the road, and it was my hope that politicians in Westminster would see that not everyone is as good as the House Authorities, and 649 of the 650 MP's in Parliament.
Anyway, having gone hell for leather to expose the inequalities in our equalities legislation, the European Guide Dog Federation invited me to appear at their Romanian Conference to mark the first guide dog partnership in the Country. And so I am looking forward to showing off the best that Guide Dogs in the UK has to offer.
Of course I am a political correspondent, and so I will also be welcoming the opportunity of chatting with the Romanian Health Minister in Bucharest.
So that's what I'm up to. If I can find a wifi network, I may post between now and next Monday - but IF in the meantime, I'm a little quiet, you'll know where I am. Ok that's my flight being called!
