On the day after the Tories launched their election manifesto, Conservative MSP Murdo Fraser joined George Kerevan and Lesley in the pod. They started by looking at co-operatives, the emasculation of local government and the Scottish General Election. Detouring via the Leaders' Debate, they managed to pull apart the current campaign without a reference to Gene Hunt. Remarkable.
