Welcome to this week’s edition of the dugcast fae the dughoose with guest Angus MacNeil, the SNP MP for Na h-Eileanan an Iar. Angus is perhaps best known for being a strong proponent of the need for a Plan B in order to secure an independence referendum from Westminster. We chat about lockdown in the islands, Westminster’s plans to end distance working for MPs, and of course that Plan B and the need to keep campaigning for independence and for some political measures which will ensure that Scotland gets a referendum on its own future, and much more besides. Also I swear at him for having more hair than me – although to be fair, having more hair than me isn’t difficult.
We had a slight technical issue about 20 minutes in and our connection was lost, but we managed to get it back. I hope it doesn’t spoil your listening too much. Next week I am going to try recording the podcast via CleanFeed, but have had a couple of issues registering for the site.
