This week Lesley wrote about the Scottish Government’s “backing a quota to enforce 40 per cent representation of women on all public and company boards – after a Yes vote.  She also talks through the background to this article which includes the exchanges on twitter of Nicola Sturgeon, Shona Robison, Kezia Dugdale and Jenny Marra as they worked through the policy or not on a wet Sunday afternoon.

And could you get the Scots to change their mind for £500 ? Apparently so, if you believe the latest polls.

In the week where humour raises its head in the referendum debate; we worry about the panto stars, Jim Murphy and cybernats.

And Lesley has been swimming. Rant alert. Was it Michael Jamieson, the Olympic Silver Medallist, who was her source of annoyance or inspiration in the crowded lanes? You will need to listen to find out.
