For the 152nd episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast I’ve pulled together some of the recent notable comments by some pro-indy folks and by some unionists.
The Tories seem to want to deny everything, some people are trying to ramp up the hysteria and others are trying to calm it all down. In the middle of it all Gordon Brown made another intervention, and then went away again without anyone noticing.
Apart from that, the BBC edited Nicola Sturgeon rather sneakily, and there are two comments, both radically different in tone, from interested parties south of the border.
It’s the 150th episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast and the 250th podcast I have put together that is about Scottish Independence in some way, so it’s a double sort of anniversary. I hope you’ve been enjoying them.
This time we are back to the interviews and in this universal moment of “what the hell is going on?” I spoke to Pat Kane, who I’m sure doesn’t need any introduction other than to say he isn’t the ice-hockey player that comes up if you search Pat Kane on google (if you found the podcast when you were searching for that Pat Kane…I once went to a Fife Flyers match).
We spoke about the the events of this week regarding the new independence referendum, how we are going to need to campaign, what new allies might come along to the party, what is likely to be against us and how we can fight it.
