The Polling Station 24 – What The Hell Just Happened?

So here is the last episode of The Polling Station for now (it could very well resurface around future election times), and Ivan and I had a chat about what happened in both Scotland and CEu43DyWYAAlpUjEngland, and what we’re likely to see in the coming months and years.

Where to for the Labour branch office in Scotland and down south? What, if anything, will the Tories give to Scotland? Do we need to bother talking about the libdems? These were just some of the questions we got onto it, and I resisted the temptation to say something unspeakable about Ian Davidson, though I did say something about him.

As a little aside, I’ll be going back to the Scottish Independence Podcast format very soon, so watch out for those.

The Polling Station 23 – Election Roundup 2

The Polling Station is a podcast of around 5 minutes with short informative little pieces on the election matters that are being missed, evaded, obfuscated or terminalogically inexactituded in the normal election coverage. It’ll be every day between now and the election, with Ivan McKee, myself and others. It also features William Duguid‘s Terminalogical Inexactitude of the day or election commentary.

In what podcast can you get Errol Brown, St Enoch’s, Nick Clegg and the Institute for Fiscal Studies? This one. Ivan and I give a last wee run round the stories before the polls open, and William makes the nonsense drummed up by someone (pending investigation) in Glasgow yesterday, seem exactly what it was.

This is the 23rd episode, you can find the others here from newest to oldest.
