This week’s @lesleyriddoch Podcast starts by trying to unpick BBC2’s “Scotland:For Richer or Poorer?” and Channel4’s “The Great British Break-Up?”.
Both programmes seem to illustrate a couple of problems which are leading to ‘debate fatigue’. There is also a mention of intimidation which Lesley wrote about and we examine that in a bit more detail. Lesley also offers a few thoughts about how this malaise in the #indyref could be addressed.
Which in turn leads to some views about transport infrastructure priorities and Glasgow Airport Rail Link.
We also talk about “Time To Dump Trident For Good" and Lesley reveals more of the background to why the polls don’t always reflect the reality of Scots’ opinions about nuclear weapons.
