    Week 24, 2022: IndyRef, freedom of speech and a tale of two ferries

    Week 24, 2022: IndyRef, freedom of speech and a tale of two ferries

    It’s the week in which Nicola Sturgeon heralded a new dawn for independence but didn’t have a legal route or date to show for it. Conservatives continue to stand firmly against a second referendum and point to failings on domestic issues including two ferries on the Clyde. But there’s better news sailing down the Forth. And we rake over the eye-opening judgement in the strange case of ‘Lady Whistledown’.

    Week 23, 2022: Drug addiction special

    Week 23, 2022: Drug addiction special

    It’s the week in which serious problems with the country’s approach to drug and alcohol abuse were sidelined by distractions at Westminster. Boris Johnson faced down a confidence vote which leaves his party bitterly divided from top to bottom and with the Scottish Tories. Meanwhile, we spoke with MSP Paul Sweeney about how Labour might tackle drug addiction. We also discussed exclusive coverage of a key drugs taskforce figure’s resignation and failings in Scotland’s minimum alcohol pricing policy.

    Week 22, 2022: Focus on autism in education

    It’s the week in which Scotland’s finance secretary Kate Forbes got branded “Thatcher” for a spending review with harsh consequences for public services. Scotland’s census continued to limp along past the already-extended deadline, while critics feared it would be a dud for useful information. And we discuss a special investigation from our colleagues looking at autism in education, including a chat with SNP schools secretary Shirley-Anne Somerville.
