This week Lesley talks about the ‘Wooing the undecided voter’ which she wrote about for Newsnet Scotland. At the same time, David Cameron was urging the English, Welsh and Northern Irish to woo the Scots to ‘No’ by showing and sharing the love.

At the weekend, Lesley also crossed swords with David Aaronovitch over the contention ‘English, Scottish? Too close to separate over a range of attitudes’. Wings Over Scotland provided a summary and the audio; but here Lesley outlines her thinking and the background to their clash.

And, finally, as the Scottish Labour Party prepares to unleash its proposals for devolution post ‘No’, the rumours are not setting the heather alight or so Lesley thinks.
