For the 8th episode of For A' That Andrew and myself were joined by Ian Smart who it is fair to say, is not of the same mind as Andrew and I regarding independence.
We started off about whether Salmond is losing his mojo and whether it matters or not, and also if Nicola Sturgeon's standing is being aided or hindered by the controversial figure that is Salmond (as an aside, I for one have never figured out precisely why people find him a controversial figure but hey ho).
Ian got into a very interesting legal discussion on cutbacks in legal aid and the problems this is causing/will cause.
Gay marriage and the various ructions (actual or perceived) surrounding the debate was another topic, as were the recent protests regarding flags in Belfast and Glasgow.
We even found time to give a (real) suggestion about where struggling graduates might find some work.
This is the second last episode before we take a break over Christmas (The Scottish Independence Podcast will continue but For A' That is taking a wee break over the period).
Therefore, our next episode will be the last episode of the year and will be a kind of review of the year. Are there any stories you would like us to bring up? Let us know.
