Episode 136 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast
You can download the episode directly here.
This week, Craig talks to James Foley and Ben Wray who, along with the late Neil Davidson, have written a book looking at the “two souls” of the independence movement. On one hand, the pluralistic and largely left-wing grassroots “Indy Movement” and on the other, the more top-down, centralised and centrist or even centre-right campaign of the Scottish Government. Scotland After Britain looks at the two possible futures that could result from either of these campaigns and argues that if independence is to correct injustices created by the British Establishment, it must break with that Establishment rather than seeking to be a “stable” continuation of it.
Scotland After Britain is available from Verso Press here.
