Show Notes

Cummings,Covid, that dodgy Aussie trade deal,falling out with Joe Biden and the EU over the Northern Ireland Protocol. You would think that this would be a premiership and a government in crisis. However the Tories, yes we'll still call them that, are riding high in the opinion polls and Sir Keir Starmer still seems incapable of landing a telling blow. What is going on?
There is a mounting housing crisis in the Highlands and Islands,exacerbated by Brexit, tourism,soaring land prices,and the growth of second homes. This is a challenge not just for the newly elected MSPs for these areas but for the Scottish government and its possible new partners,the Greens. Will they be up to it?
Scotland is in the midst of Euro football fever and we try and get to grips with the hold the success or failure of the men's international side has on the nation,while looking at the unbreakable link between sport,politics ,and national well being not only in Scotland but in three of our closest neighbours.
