Will they go ...or will they stay? Lesley is on holiday in Crete and talks to local Cretans as to what they think about the Greek Euro Crisis. We also manage to have an interesting discussion about local wild life before plunging back into our own, in the form of 'clypegate'. And we finish on Obama and Castle Toward.

This week Lesley travelled down to Huddersfield to speak at the #NorthernCitizens Convention to talk devolution. We also briefly touch on that Daily Record story again and wonder aloud about the  focus - Holyrood or Westminster, as bits of Scotland get sold off. Are we following Holyrood 'blow by blow'?

 

On a lighter note, we talk West Fife SNP lupins, lost property at weekends, food on trains, the success of Uffie Elbæck and the challenges of securing the rights  to display Icelandic art.

This weekend, we were in Oban for the People's Council event. In this podcast we try and relate all the issues which were covered in this gathering of activists. From the way it was organised through to the speakers and the insights, there is a lot to share about the moves afoot in local democracy. As usual, we also try and catch up on the week and bring in other detours.
