    Redgauntlet #1: The Independence Impasse

    Redgauntlet #1: The Independence Impasse

    Redgauntlet is the Scottish politics show from Skotia and Scottish Left Review.



    Our first episode explores Scotland's constitutional bind. John Swinney insists independence will be line one of the SNP’s general election manifesto, but he knows his party has exhausted the constitutional routes to a second referendum. Scottish Labour looks set for gains across the central belt in July, while Keir Starmer wraps himself in a union jack. With the General Election just weeks away, the electorate remains evenly divided on the independence question. 



    To interrogate the independence impasse and explore how Scotland can escape this doom loop, Coll McCail is joined by Cat Boyd and Kenny Farquharson.
