The Polling Station 12 – Education

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.

We talked about a story that pro-union parties are fond of repeating (and sticking on leaflets), specifically that under the SNP college places have fallen. However, as she pointed out in her blog, the truth is somewhat different from the soundbites.

We also talked about the importance of maintaining free higher education in Scotland or indeed any other society.

This is the 12th episode, you can find the others here from newest to oldest

Hope you enjoy…
