The Scottish Independence Podcast 36 – TUC Debate

49d5e1dac04019736262b6dc669658caIn the course of these podcasts I’d like to include, along with our usual interviews, some debates that happen along the way that you may have missed.

These may be debates in Scotland on the subject of independence directly, like this one, or alternatively on subjects which, like the last episode, are related to the debate but deserve to be seen in a broader context.

This episode is the debate recently held by Clydebank TUC with the subject “Should The Working Class Support Independence?

The original audio was very poor but I’ve worked on it as best I can and it is now audible (the first minute isn’t great but it gets better). In the bits where lots of  people are shouting however, it still sounds like lots of people shouting in a room. It is interesting to note however, that Anas Sarwar was the person being consistently shouted down in such a labour heartland.

The speakers were Linda Fabiani MSP from the SNP, Anas Sarwar MP Deputy Leader Scottish Labour,  Richard Leonard from the Red Paper Collective and GMB Scotland Political Officer and finally Jim Bollan WDC Councillor.

Hope you enjoy…

  1. Voters who believe Grogan and his acolytes represents a real movement for independence within Labour ranks are being conned. From the people in its publicity shots to the activists leafleting ‘like a boss’, Labour for Independence is kept alive by Scottish nationalists.
