Season 2 Episode 8 - Holyrood Election Preview: Part 2

#39: Holyrood Election Preview – Part 2

In Episode 39 of Apolitical we welcome back Carolyn Scott, James McEnaney and Ian Dunn for more discussion of the parties contesting this year’s Scottish elections. In this episode we look at some of our preferred policies and the best-case electoral scenario for each of the parties.



Amongst the topics we discuss on the podcast are:

• Who is going to be the official opposition in the next Parliament;

• Which policies we would like to see implemented;

• What outcomes the parties can dream of before the votes are counted;

• Where some of the key battlegrounds will be;


• Our predictions for the election result.


Please join us in discussing these issues or any other raised in the podcast below, or find us on Twitter at @apoliticalpod.
