Welcome to your Full Scottish, live from the YES Bar in Glasgow.
Programme starts at 12:30 PM on Sunday 24th July 2016
We’re so glad to see so many of you lovely people here on the Full Scottish. And we would especially like to welcome all the Yes, No and Don’t Knows to join us here in the Yesbar in Glasgow at this time. We certainly hope you all enjoy the show.
And remember, people, that no matter who you are and what you do to live, thrive and survive, there’re still some things that makes us all the same. You. Me. Them. Everybody. Everybody …
Yup, it seems the band is getting back together (if it were ever really disbanded), so please forgive our misquoting the wonderful Blues Brothers! This summer sees a whole new discussion around Indyref2 so this week’s Full Scottish will look at what that could look like, who – if anyone – should be in charge – and how the grass movement Yes groups of 2014 could work together again.
Joining hosts Michelle Rodger and Richard Walker are journalist Kathleen Nutt, Women for Independence’s Kathleen Caskie, the man behind Yes2 Tony McCandless, Glasgow Councillor Mhairi Hunter and foreign correspondent David Pratt. Music will be from upcoming artist Lisa Rigby.
Following the newspaper review, the Full Scottish has video interviews with the four candidates standing to be deputy leader of the SNP.
Kathleen is freelance journalist at The National., writing about Scottish & UK politics as well as social justice issues. She also writes for other newspapers and magazines including The Times, The Herald and the Mail on Sunday.
Previously she wrote for the News of the World, mostly covering news and politics and was a freelance contributor to The Tablet and Edinburgh-based political periodical Holyrood magazine.
Kathleen Caskie from Women for Independence makes a welcome return to the Full Scottish and also returning is Mhairi Hunter, Glasgow Councillor for Southside Central and FM Nicola Sturgeon’s constituency manager since 2007.
David Pratt makes his regular weekly contribution with a look at the international news, and some insight into the tragic events in Munich. And Tony McCandless makes his debut on the Full Scottish; a Yes activist, member of Business for Scotland and the man behind Yes2, he will be talking about how he sees the Yes movement coming back to life.
Lisa Rigby is an award-winning musician from Edinburgh, previously playing with bands including Edinburgh trio townhouse and pan-Scottish outfit The Kilmarnock Edition, and now performing under her own name. Lisa describes her style as ‘head and heart’ music.
