This week, Jonathon Shafi is joined by special guest Rory Steel from the SNP Common Weal group and the Support SNIC campaign. They discuss the Infrastructure Commission for Scotland’s recent rejection of proposals passed overwhelmingly at SNP conference in 2018 to create a Scottish National Infrastructure Company. They look at what the SNIC could do for Scotland and calls for this decision to be overturned and rexamined from a broader perspective. Rory also tells us who the SNP Common Weal Group are and what their aims are within the party.
