Aye Right Radio videocast 245 podcast 2 S3. Englishman Talking to a Scot

  Englishman Talking to a Scot

  • We focus on the Andrew Marr show followed by two articles in the Sunday Times by Alex Massie.  
  • In interview by Marr,  Northern Ireland FM Arlene Foster avoided the word ‘border’,  reminding us that it’s 100 years since the current United Kingdom union began and that the Brexit NI protocol can be ended by a Stormont vote in four years.  
  • Then in interview,  PM Johnson failed to affect Stewart’s blood pressure and revealed little for a Monday tabloid headline though Marr challenged him over what democratic tools were left for a pro Scottish independence voter if a fresh indyref was refused.  
  • Alex Massie returns to assist us in dissecting topical independence issues.

  • MP Pete Wishart blots his copybook with a rude reply to a letter from Dr. Timothy Rideout of the SNP Policy Development Committee.  We get excited over that.  
  • Paul Goodman of Conservative Home gets roasted for his London Times opinion piece.  
  • Jimmy coins some wonderful turns of phrase.  Norrie is on his own not wearing socialist red. Stewart apologises (again) for a mix-up over assemblies and letters.

Aye Right Radio videocast 230 podcast 290. Drug Deaths Capital

Drug Deaths Capital   

  • Drug deaths dominated FMQs. Ruth Davidson, Richard Leonard and Willie Rennie pressed FM Sturgeon about her responsibility for the scandal.  The three of us had a proper barney about it.  
  • Patrick Harvie raised the Supreme Court decision to approve a third runway at Heathrow and challenged the FM on her support for it.  We also discovered that a Climate Change Plan was published yesterday. We will have to try harder.  
  • A new Comres poll has support for independence at 58% again, meaning there’s now 17 polls in a row proving that ‘freedom’ is now the settled will of the Scottish electorate.
