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.

Scottish Independence Podcast 158 – How Bad & Incompetent The UK Government Is

In the case of Brexit, I heard assurances throughout the course of the mission and yesterday at the human rights council from the government that Brexit would not lower protection from environmental threats. However, I also heard, or actually did not hear any clear assurances of how that would be the case. There have been statements from metoxic-waste-5mbers of government saying that existing laws will be maintained wherever practical and desirable, which I find very worrying.
– Baskut Tuncak, UN Rapporteur

The 158th episode of The Scottish Independence Podcast features a talk given at the UN by Baskut Tuncak. The report was about the UK and the quote I put above is possible the least damning thing he said, not the most.

Human rights abuses, toxic waste, pollution, brexit, poisoning of children in the UK and abroad, agreements with dodgy overseas partners and more, this is a strong indicator of just how dysfunctional, intransigent and even nasty the British state can be.

Hope you enjoy.
