We're back after our three week break and unashamedly spend the first part of the podcast singing the praises, with a few caveats, of the brand-new V&A Dundee. Many thanks to Jenny, V&A Dundee press officer for her help in organising our visit.
However, we get back to grim reality with the recent controversy over P1 assessments, yesterday’s defeat for the Scottish government over them, on a Tory led motion, and the reaction to it among independence supporters. Lesley's thoughts, as always, are well worth a listen.
Ruth Davidson's revelations concerning her mental health issues and her lack of desire to become UK PM have definitely caused controversy and we give our, different, perspectives on them.
Theresa May's recent comments to EU leaders on the Irish border question provide the ideal introduction for Lesley to reflect on her recent visit to Belfast and the mood of both nationalists and unionists over Brexit.
All of this plus fire-raising suffragettes, Bobby Gillespie, and McVities Rich Tea Biscuits (other brands are of course available).
