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 the heart of issues, trying to find the substance behind the headlines.

IN this week’s podcast, Jamieson speaks to activist and commentator Jonathon Shafi about the opening days of an historic general election.

They discuss:

00:42 – How well have the three major parties – Labour, Tory and SNP – faired in the first few days of the election campaign?

3:50 – Will the SNP campaign on a clear pro-independence stance?

12:20 – Can the Lib Dem vote hold up, and will the first past the post system re-consolidate the vote around Labour and the Conservatives?

17:05 – Can Corbyn pull-off a transformative election victory that puts a cap on decades of Thatcherism?
