Scottish Independence Podcast 162 – Trump and Tories

Davidson2 The 162nd episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is a quick run through of some of the things that Trump and the Tories have been up to.

Some listeners may find the amount of Ruth Davidson in it upsetting, however, when she is in it, she is constistently making an arse of herself. She also says some terminological inexactitudes, seems to forget that welfare isn’t a devolved matter and more.

There is also someone making fun of Trump, but the problem with that is that whatever you say about him, he is easily able to outdo it with what he says himself.

Just Passing It On

I have no comment to make on this but I think I should just leave it here for those of you who didn’t see it on Twitter.

I am sure the organisation involved probably does a lot of good work. However, you will have to make up your own mind about whether you think something nefarious is going on or not in this particular case.

Yesterday Mr Malky tweeted that the organisation Age Scotland seems to be hunting around for individuals who have had less than ideal service on the NHS.

After that, a few people did some digging.

Southern Uplander noticed that the Policy and Communications Manager of Age Scotland is in fact Richard Baker, who was on the Better Together board of directors and is an ex-labour MSP.

Following that up, ItsaGoinWrang had a look and found out that George Foulkes is on the board of directors of Age Scotland…

I’m not going to add any further comment to this, just passing it on.

Scottish Independence Podcast 161 – Christians For Indy

About a month ago I found the image below.

I noticed that the only people I hadn’t had on the show among the conveners and voting organisations were Elaine C. Smith (I’ve tried – can’t seem to get in touch with her), AyeScotland, Christians For Independence and Pensioners for Independence.

I then immediately tweeted out asking if any of those organisations would like to come on the show for a talk about independence. The first I managed to organise something with (and I’ll be working on the others shortly) were Christians for Independence.

1393438629I’m not a religious man myself so I thought it would be interesting to hear their perspective and, as the guest, Dave Thompson – former SNP MSP and convener of the group, pointed out in the show, over 400,000 people regularly  attend churches in Scotland every week so is this a demographic the indy movement can afford to ignore?

So here is the 161st episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast with Dave Thompson of Christians for independence

Scottish Independence Podcast 160 – Ian Hamilton QC

Ian Hamilton QuoteThe 160th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast is an interview with Ian Hamilton QC, probably most known for going down to London with some friends and /taking back/stealing/repatriating/borrowing (delete as you wish) The Stone of Destiny/Scone. I have always wanted to have him on the show but unfortunately it wasn’t me that got to interview him, it was instead Mike Small of Bella Caledonia (Bella also has a fundraiser), who has allowed me to make it up into an episode here.

We get some great details on the story of the taking of stone and about the independence movement and its history.

Hope you enjoy.
