Welcome to the 15 November edition of the dugcast. This week I am joined by The National’s Stewart Ward and we discuss the developments this week in the General Election campaign. We chat about the SNP’s court case, Jeremy Corbyn’s visit to Scotland, Boris Johnson’s disastrous visit to the flood victims in South Yorkshire, the allegations from the Brexit party about Tory dirty tricks, and much more besides.
There won’t be any updates to the blog until Monday as I am off to Wick in Caithness first thing tomorrow to speak at an event for Yes Caithness. It’s a long drive from Glasgow, and will entail an overnight stay. If you’re in the far north of Scotland, please come along – the dug and I would love to see you. The event is at the Nethercliffe Hotel, Louisburgh St, Wick KW1 4NS and kicks off at 7.30 pm on Saturday evening. I’ll be doing a talk, and there will be a buffet afterwards. Admission is free.
