This week, Jonathon Shafi and Craig Dalzell discuss a column written by Andy MacIver on how the pro-Union campaign has to change if it wants to win its battle of preventing Scottish Independence. They discuss Andy's eight points and use them to reflect on the position of the pro-independence campaign to see if we can improve what our side can bring to the debate.

Andy MacIver's column can be read here.

Common Weal's pressure campaign paper Within Our Grasp can be read here.

And Craig's article in Source on the developments in the campaign for a Scottish National Infrastructure Company can be read here.
