Happy New Year! This episode invited two well known members of the SNP and Scottish Greens to share their view of the political situation in 2015 and how they expect things to unfold in the run-up to the UK general election in May.
First, former SNP treasurer Ian Blackford arrived to offer his trenchant view of politics in the Highlands and Islands, and to urge all Scots to work together to improve life in Scotland, regardless of the constitutional debate.
Ian advocates Home Rule now, rather than waiting for a second referendum and a hoped-for Yes vote.
Zara Kitson is one of the bright young stars of the Green movement in Scotland. She discusses the growth of the party, post-referendum, and how issues like fracking bring a new political agenda.
Both SNP and Greens have experienced phenomenal growth since September 18 last, despite being on the losing side. Both parties are at various stages of picking candidates for the Westminster election.
