Episode 75 of the Common Weal Policy Podcast

You can download the episode directly here.

This week, Jonathon Shafi and Craig Dalzell welcome the publication of the final report of the Citizens’ Assembly, in particular their adoption of a series of policies that align well with similar policies previously published by Common Weal.

They then discuss the ongoing political crisis in the US with last week’s attack on the US Senate and the imminent prospect for the second impeachment of Donald Trump in the closing days of his term as President. Finally, they look at the procurement scandal in England that has seen vulnerable kids send food parcels that are entirely inadequate for their needs. Whilst this incident hasn’t happened in Scotland, it serves as a reflection of many of the similar political failures here that have seen private companies skim vast profits out of public services via mechanisms such as PFI – which Common Weal has campaign against on many occasions.
