  • The former First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones, has challenged the orthodoxy of the sovereignty of the Westminster parliament…He claims that that sovereignty breaches the conditions in the Treaty of Union between Scotland and England…His case names A V Dicey,  Joanna Cherry MP and Lady Hale (prorogation of parliament) …We discuss the relevance in Scotland today…

Aye Right Radio videocast 231 podcast 291. Conversion Campaign

Conversion Campaign  

  • Today’s show begins with Brexit and ends with a Conversion Campaign.  
  • We effectively segue neatly through the topics making it a single connected conversation. 
  • On the way we mention issues raised in articles by Peter A Bell,  Jo Cherry and Iain Lawson.  
  • You can’t leave the club and keep the privileges;   
  • making a U-turn may not be that painful;  
  • Welsh Labour have shamed BLiS (viz Iain Murray) and led the way for a legal challenge of the Internal Market Bill which gives Lord Advocate James Wolfe a quandary in Scotland;  
  • Iain Lawson challenges the SNP old guard especially those on wages and reminds us of the failure of the 2017 campaign.

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.
