Ben Wray

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 Tejas Mukerji, speaking in a personal capacity as an activist in SNP socialists and SNP Campaign for an Independent Currency as well as a founder of Neutral Scotland.

They discuss:

00:59 – What are the component parts of the SNP left, and how do they relate to the wider make-up of the party?

5:46 – Has the SNP left been to loosely organised until now? Has that held them back from exerting more influence over the party?

16:58 – What are the debates in the party over foreign policy, and how does the left position itself in that fight?

29:28 – What is the future of the left’s fight within the SNP and the wider independence movement?
