Scotland's Covid Reckoning: 1 - Neil Findlay
In a new podcast series, James Foley and Ewan Kerr will interview key players and experts in Scotland's Covid saga. Cutting through mythology and posturing, they will ask the big questions about democracy, governance, class and power so often obscured in recent years.
In this first episode, James and Ewan speak to Neil Findlay, former Labour MP and arch critic of the Scottish Government's handling of the Covid pandemic. They discuss the insults levelled at Findlay in uncovered government Whatsapp chats, what light the Covid inquiry casts on Sturgeonism in general, and the scandal of Covid era deaths in Scottish care homes.

Distinctive Scottish socialist take on a rapidly changing world
Where else can you get a radical left podcast that isn’t afraid to get critical about the EU, Ukraine and the SNP? They’re pro-Scottish independence but fundamentally anti-capitalist, with a global outlook. It’s a perspective that might be too negative for some (cf. Lesley Riddoch’s term “the miserablists”) but they always leave me feeling cheered up. I’m just relieved that, with events internationally becoming ever more entwined with politics at home, we’ve got people who are sharp enough and brave enough to join the dots. Recommended!
If you’ve got this far, you’ll enjoy it.
Thoughtful, concise and well produced socialist discussion that has never been more relevant and essential. Reminds you of ideals we can and should be striving to move towards.
Get on the Contercast it’s great.
