The Scottish Independence Podcast 27 – Bill Ramsay

war protestFor the 27th episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast I spoke with Bill Ramsay.

He is an activist for the EIS, the oldest teachers union in the world. Aside from that, he has some very interesting views about the UK government’s plans to have ceremonies/celebrations of the BEGINNING of the First World War.

The end, ok. The beginning? It’s a curious position.

It was very much a discussion in two parts though, and the other part was to do with the unions. Will they go Indy? Will they declare pro-union? It’s a complicated story.

Hope you enjoy it…

The Scottish Trades Union Congress refused an offer to join the Better Together campaign in 2012.
