On the morning that the Supreme Court convened to hear the appeals on the Joanna Cherry and Gina Miller cases Lesley reminds us that climate change is still the big issue.

However we can't resist the siren call of prorogation and the constitutional crisis for long and we do discuss the Supreme Court hearings. Be warned, in depth.

It's the Lib Dem conference, the first party conference of the season, in Bournemouth and we try to get our heads round their electoral strategies and targeting of the electorate. Neither of us shy away from highlighting either Jo Swinson's record in government nor the Lib Dem hypocrisy on another Scottish referendum on independence.

Lesley attended a terrific Business for Scotland event and previews the launch of its exciting pro indy materials.

 We ,yet again, wonder, in the light of the failure of Angus Brendan MacNeil and Christopher McEleny's Plan B motion to be heard at the SNP annual conference when will the SNP make independence the main plank of their General Election platform.

Finally,as Dundee V&A celebrates its first birthday we reflect on "Dundee's living room".
