Lesley is travelling this week in the Aland Islands and reports back on the big international debate which is facing Finland. A hint; it’s about NATO and Putin.

Back home Lesley has blogged and written about the Co-op but now there is a campaign involving the potential community purchase of Rosemount Farm near Blairgowrie ( @rosemountcoop ) which she explains in some detail.

And over the last weekend, there have been calls for the big hitters, the big beasts of the Labour Party to get stuck into the constitutional debate. Tavish Scott was the voice of the concern and Lesley reacted in print. Here she explains why “the day of the wee, once timorous beasties has finally arrived.”

And, Lesley had a few words for the R&A in the Sunday Post.

 

Finally, apologies for the sound quality, but it was a long VOIP call. Lesley will be back home next week.
