Not Just Scotland In Union

The CRC has no website, publishes no accounts and does not reveal the names of its donors.

With Scotland In Union looking like a busted crap hand, rather than a busted flush, it is important to remember that shadowy groups of rich union supporters have other groups and are likely just to move their money to those ones.

We already know about some of them, and we can expect others to crop up. As independence supporters we need to keep our eyes open for them.

Here is just one example, it is a group that has a nice, neutral sounding name. This is done in order to give the media licence to pretend that any material they produce is honest and impartial public interest research…

Scottish Independence Podcast 149 – Something Fishy

A recent episode of the Lesley Riddoch podcastCH5UlZFW8AE9r1R.jpg 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.

Hope you enjoy.

The Scottish Independence Podcast 136 – Robin McAlpine of The Common Weal

For the 136th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast, I spoke with Robin McAlpine.

article-3651

Robin is a political strategist and the Director of the Common Weal.

In the interview he doesn’t waste any time getting on to what the thinks Yes supporters ought to be getting on with, and there is certainly a lot to chew on in the interview.

We talked about both logistics and strategy and how they are both equally important. We also spoke of what messages we need to be sending out and how to react to the inevitable negative tactics we will face from the unionist side in the next referendum.

Hope you enjoy.

The Scottish Independence Podcast 134 – Dr Craig Dalzell on Scotland’s Currency Options

Gt1wRDr8.jpg largeFor the 134th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast, I spoke with Dr Craig Dalzell.

Craig recently wrote a paper outlining the possible currency options for an independent Scotland. This is important work because an aspect of the Yes side that was much criticised during and after the 2014 referendum was the perceived lack of a strategy on what to do about currency. I say “perceived” because much of it came down to perception, not fact.

We talked about why the 2014 plan may or may not have been right at the time, but probably wouldn’t be the correct strategy for indyref 2.

Would the Euro work? Scottish Pound? A crypto-currency?

We also talked about what the hell a crypto-currency actually is.

And of course, I asked Craig why he supports Independence for Scotland.

Hope you enjoy.
