For the 17th episode of the For A' That podcast, Andrew and I were joined by Lynda Williamson from the Newsnet Scotland site, and whom you may know as snowthistle.

Up for discussion were Alistair Darling's problems with constitutions, why Lynda is considering going Green or not and the call for election observers to be brought in to observe the Scottish Referendum. We also talked about what difference it might make if they do come.

This led on to a discussion of how the media influences people in their political opinions.

We talked about our hopes for making Richard Branson just go away. This was part of a wider discussion on the oft-repeated (and not just in Scotland) claim that higher taxes would make business leaders leave the country.

Andrew also had an interesting question as to whether or not public figures should be held to higher moral standards than mere mortals such as you and I.

Finally, we talked about something silly we all got in our mailshots this week.
