Scotland’s Ports - Who Owns Them?
Welcome to the latest episode of Mibbes Aye, our show for people who would like some more information to help make up their minds on independence.
In this episode we drop in on a discussion between Pensioners for Independence and Professor Alf Baird on the question of who owns and runs Scotland's ports and why the current situation is not working for Scotland.
Prior to his retirement, Alf was Professor of Maritime Business and Director of the Maritime Research Group at Edinburgh Napier University. He has a PhD in Strategic Management in Global Shipping.
His specialist area of research and teaching is strategic management in maritime transport. His research activities encompass most of the world's main shipping markets in Europe, Asia, Mid-East and North and Latin America and Australasia.
Getting Rid of Scotland’s Nuclear Weapons
Really enjoyed the main interview in this episode with three Scottish CND activists. It marks the first anniversary of the UN Nuclear Weapons Prohibition Treaty. And wow, what an example of two campaigns reinforcing each other: an independent Scotland would certainly become signature to TPNW and the TPNW would certainly provide support to Scotland’s negotiations to get rid of Trident. And who knows what that would mean for the UK’s nuclear arsenal.
Scottish topical content - excellent
Really enjoying the fresh, topical content from this podcast! Learning lots about Scottish culture and politics, economics, history, and all very entertaining and engaging.
History for all
This is the history we all should have been taught at school, engaging and linked to the modern day experience, it’s a must listen for all those interested in where we Scots came from and perhaps where we are going
