Our first “sell-out” event at the Scottish parliament on March 16th was a great success.

In a packed podcast this week, immigration, exports, voting and the Glasgow Commonwealth Games logo are discussed by Tiffany Jenkins, Peter MacMahon and Lesley Riddoch. It's interesting to note that a Budget and an election are upon us and the opinions expressed are not what you might expect.
In the pod this week are Joyce McMillan, Bill Jamieson and George Kerevan talking about the latest surprising developments in the polls, canvassing and the Stephen Purcell resignation.
