In this week's podcast we turn our indy left gaze on the current pelters for Boris Johnson over his,so called,Speed Deal for post Covid economic recovery and compare this with the plaudits for Nicola Sturgeon,even with the "provocative" possibility of border controls.
We seem to be sticking to Scottish government guidelines on tackling Covid but why are Scots so reluctant to wear face coverings?
As criticism of the Johnson New Deal mounts noted economist Professor Richard Murphy suggests that a revolution in home decarbonisation could not only help save the planet but prevent catastrophic unemployment. Will the Scottish government be able to make any movement on this within the limits of its devolved powers?
We keep returning to land, its ownership, use and hoarding, in our podcasts and Lesley asks just what the, seemingly,doomed Langholm Moor community buy out tells us about Scottish government land policy.
All this plus the revolving door of privatised public services, hut puns,PhDs, and Doctor Feelgood.
