In this week's podcast Lesley returns refreshed and optimistic from her trip to Eigg. She reflects on the plight of the Paterson family on Arran facing eviction because of flawed legislation and asks for your support. We revisit the need for local government reform and and I get all nerdy about the lessons to be taken from the Walloons'  successful opposition to CETA. As for intestines and umbrella...well you'll need to listen to solve that riddle.

If a week's a long time in politics, is two weeks an eternity? Lesley returns after her sojourns at the Arctic Circle Assembly and the IdeaSpace fringe event at the SNP conference. I chip in with a defence of men in "locker rooms" and we both grapple with some interesting technical issues.

This week's episode shows what happens to two normally rational folk who only got through the Tory Party conference by consuming copious amounts of coffee. Lesley examines UKIP infighting, the return of the Nasty Party,British jobs for British workers, and Nordic Horizons by way of a failed rectorial campaign, and the importance of the number 87 to local government. We also have our first on air disagreement. 

We're away next week as I channel my inner Spencer Tracy in Father of the Bride as my Jenni gets married.
