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

Hope you enjoy.

Journey To Yes – 17 – A.C. Grayling

The excellent Phantom Power has been publishing the next second series of Journey To Yes.

He is one of the most important assets the yes side have in this debate.

You can watch all of them on this site or on youtube.

(He also had me in one of his films, along with the Wee Ginger Dug. and some time ago I had him on the podcast.)

 

So It’s Like That Is It?

In the interests of full disclosure, and this may shock you, I support Scottish Independence.

Over the years I have repeatedly called on the media to be fairer on that issue. More specifically, I would prefer if they didn’t spread the wild stories and accusations of unionists without analysing them at all, whilst at the same time treating the comments and research of independence supporters to the most withering scrutiny and exaggerating possible difficulties (Corbynistas – are you beginning to understand what we went through?).

Through all of this however, I never once called on the media to be more “patriotic”. Such a thing from an independence supporter would undoubtedly provoke a shitstorm.

Tory ministers however can do it no problem…
