For the 116th episode of the Scottish Independence Podcast I spoke with Craig Paterson from RISE.
We talked about the motivation behind the RISE movement, what they realistically hope to achieve over the long-term and how they hope to provide a real left alternative in Scottish politics.
We also got on to general scene in Scottish politics at the moment, the woes of the Labour party, the prospective make-up of the next Scottish parliament and, unfortunately, we talked about Willie Rennie for some as yet uknown reason.
In the latter part of the discussion we had a look at something that decent people of any colour in Scottish politics should be worried about, which is Dungavel Detention Centre (or if you prefer, prison for people who haven't done anything wrong).
All that and more in the new episode.
Hope you enjoy…
