For A’ That 45 – The Niceties

For the 45th episode of the For A’ That podcast, Andrew and I were joined by Pat Kane, who I’m sure doesn’t need the introduction, and by Michelle Thomson from Business for Scotland.

Our first topic was a discussion about some of the themes that Robin McAlpine hinted at in this article. Put simply, are the Yes side being too nice?

Apart from that, the media was the hot topic this week. With protests against BBC bias going on outside their Scottish 250px-Public_Access_TVheadquarters, what do we actually expect a state broadcaster to be doing in such an event? Furthermore, in an independent Scotland shouldn’t we be trying to organise the media with a different model and if so, what should it look like?

Will the big debate with Salmond V TBA (To Be Affronted) ever happen? Who knows? However, we tackled this issue from another angle by asking, quite frankly, what would be the point?

There’s all that and more in the new episode.

Hope you enjoy…
