Interview with DDP pick Jock Scot here. Nothing of particular interest: he's still refusing chemo and describes his condition as "stable". Should apparently have been dead by October last year according to doctors.

Ah, no wonder I couldn't google him. His name is spelt wrong in the DDP list! Also, is it time for a "chemotherapy causes cancer" conspiracy theory yet? Martin Crowe could join.
