Welcome to your Full Scottish, from our Cowcaddens Studio in Glasgow.
Full Scottish programme starts at 12:00 midday on Sunday 17th June 2018
On this week’s Full Scottish from, Cameron Archibald is joined by guests Sandra White MSP and Journalist and writer, Susan Mansfield.
The mood will probably be a bit sombre as we begin the programme with the tragic fire which has left the Glasgow School of Art a shell.
Discussion will be a bit livelier as we discuss Westminster’s attempted “Power Grab” to take control of powers returning from the EU, which would normally be the remit of the devolved assemblies and the SNP walking out of the House of Commons in response to what they perceived as disrespect shown to Scotland.
Also in Westminster this week, a private member’s bill to ban taking “upskirt” photos or “upskirting” was blocked by Tory back-bencher, Sir Christopher Chope, for no apparent reason other than he does not like private member’s bills. This was a matter which would only have effected England and Wales as Scotland had already made “upskirting” illegal 10 years ago.
Sandra White is the Member of the Scottish Parliament for Glasgow Kelvin. Having been active in politics, both locally and nationally, since joining the SNP in 1983, Sandra served as the Councillor for Foxbar (Renfrewshire) for ten years before being elected as a MSP in 1999.
