As the full horror of the tragic events at Grenfell Tower reveals itself we ask if this was not an accident but the inevitable outcome of the state of UK society.

A society which promotes civic neglect, has contempt for the poor, places profit above people , and silences dissent.

Lesley reflects on the continuing aftermath of last Thursday, Tommy Shepphard's abortive bid to become Leader of the SNP in the House of Commons ,Common Weal's six ideas to revitalise the Scottish Government and if any kind of "soft" Brexit can be achieved.

We also have a wee bit of chat on the Corbyn Effect.
