This week’s @lesleyriddoch Podcast is an outside broadcast from the Western Isles, recorded in the ‘Mediterranean’ swelter of Luskentyre. Lesley has touring the Western Isles with Angus Brendan MacNeil MP as part of the “Blossom and Bu Choir’ tour.

Together they cover the topics of remote communications on islands, including an interesting insight into how UK telecoms works and what 4G could do. Both are learning Nordic languages and are taking different things away from that experience.

With 8 weeks to go; what’s the temperature of Westminster about the #indyref ? Will the Commonwealth Games have an effect ?

And finally, the role of boiler suits in politics?  This podcast is full of the craic.
