It's all TV appearances, football, Paisley, Porty and PR this week.  It's time to talk about the unasked questions of 'Question Time'  and Michael White's moustache. We also talk about the possibility of Scots boycotting the forthcoming football friendly with Qatar. There are also some startling revelations about PR from the Electoral Reform Society.

Jim Murphy resigned this week and now we have the spectacle of the UK and Scottish Labour parties looking for a leader. In this week's podcast we discuss the various names being offered as potential leaders. What role will the trade unions have?

The 2015 General Election delivered some surprises, an exit poll out of the blue, a Tory majority and party leadership changes.

Lesley tells us what it was like to be on the STV couch for 4 hours and then what the rest of the election night was like for her.

 

She also outlines her thoughts on a Tory majority, a single party Scotland and the new community initiatives which are springing up.

In this final podcast before the votes are cast in the 2015 General Election, we talk about heckling in all its forms. We also talk about what we have liked about the campaigns and those things we have been less than keen about...there have been a lot.

This week is slightly different. After all the acivity of the General Election so far, we pause to reflect on where we have got to. Ed Milliband seems to have suggested 'No Deals' with the SNP, but what does that mean? Are Scottish votes second class? How are things shaping up as we contemplate the post #GE2015 UK?

We recorded very late on Friday night/Saturday morning after Lesley had finished talking to the excellent ( as ever ) Stephen Nolan. We touch briefly on events, name drop and recommend a good TTIP education  resource ( thanks - Kenny )

We will be recording again on Tuesday night...before the last hectic day of the election campaign.
