Ambassador of controversy (Part one)

In the first of a series on the top ten political bloggers in the UK, Alex Salmond interviews Craig Murray, a former British ambassador in Tashkent and now radical blogger, Scottish nationalist, and fierce critic of Whitehall Foreign policy. Once the youngest ambassador in the UK Foreign Office, Murray paid a high personal price for his determination to expose human rights abuses and extraordinary rendition in Uzbekistan. He has now found a new career as the author of one of the most controversial political blogs in the country.
