Beyond the Noise with David Jamieson is a weekly podcast with CommonSpace journalist David Jamieson, where he gets behind the 24/7 news cycle and gets to heart of issues, trying to find the substance behind the headlines.
IN THIS week’s podcast Jamieson is joined by CommonSpace editor Ben Wray to discuss First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s statement on the future of Scottish independence and the SNP Conference vote on Sterlingisation:
1:38 – What does Sturgeon’s statement on a second independence referendum within the current parliamentary term mean for the independence cause?
10:00 – What are the problems that would be confronted by any Citizen’s Assembly model as announced by Sturgeon?
15:26 – Why the debate over the Growth Commission has been completely one sided.
26:00 – What are the consequences for opponents of the Growth Commissions ideas should they pass at SNP conference and what are the wider consequences for the independence movement.
