We talked about the wider context in which the argument over the timing of the second independence referendum is being played out in. We also spoke about the hysterical reactions of some unionist commentators – why are they so furious and how should we react to it.
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.
A recent episode of the Lesley Riddoch podcast mentioned a couple of things regarding what’s going to happen to fishing and agriculture in Scotland post-brexit. I felt what they were talking about was so important that we should go straight to the horse’s mouth, and then to the horses a***s (Mundell & Farage).
So for the 149th episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast I’ve pulled together the relevant comments and something fishy does indeed seem to be going on.
Due to a large quantity of people I’m going to interview soon being on holiday, just to keep things ticking over, episode 147 of the Scottish Independence Podcast is a few interesting clips pulled from here and there that you may have missed.
