This week’s @Lesleyriddoch podcast picks up on the UK Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change’s presentation to the Scottish Renewables Conference. On the basis of what he said and hasn’t done; it’s a continuing surprise that renewables and renewable energy don’t feature more prominently in the current constitutional debate. 

It’s a similar picture as we turn to Grant Shapps’ current problems; #ToryBingo. Lesley wrote about this in the Sunday Post and here we speculate more about the Budget and its implications. 

Lesley shared some late night radio magic with the irrepressible @stephennolan at the Scottish Labour Conference. Lesley gets a mixed reception from delegates. She also has good things to say about @keziadugdale and some mixed views about the leaders’ speeches. 

Finally – there is plea for Nordic Horizons’ neutrality. Please enjoy this week’s @lesleyriddoch Podcast responsibly and share generously.
