Another quartet for this week’s For A’ That podcast.
This time the group comprised Andrew (or “him”), poet, activist and Bella Caledonia co-editor Kevin Williamson and Rory Scothorne who was a co-founder of the National Collective.
We discussed the ongoing problems with Creative Scotland. This became a larger discussion about the cultural scene in Scotland and even the British Isles. We didn’t think Jack Straw knows what he is talking about. We also had a word about how some artists and
writers have been choosing sides in the indy debate and why some may feel reluctant to do so.
Nicola Sturgeon’s speech from this week was a topic and seemed to meet with broad approval. We discussed some of the interesting themes the speech brought up.
Our last topic was the announcement that more than a million pounds will be given to various academics to study the possible effects of independence.
I cannot of course talk about this episode without mentioning Andrew’s flabbergasting suggestion about what should be done with unionists.
