Lesley returns to the fight to stop tenant farmers the Patersons of Arran being evicted. This despite the Scottish Government's "radical" land reform act. Is this the test of the SNP's progressive credentials?

I focus on the Brexit debate in the Scottish Parliament as we all try and find out where the parties stand on membership of the single market and whether the EEA is the Scottish Government's new preferred option.

Lesley asks will Scotland's 32 huge councils become just 14 massive ones and why is Scotland the  only European nation without truly local government?

 

And finally we reveal our favourite driving music. Be prepared to be shocked and awed!
