Scottish Labour: The Road to Holyrood
Apr 09, 2021

With the Scottish Parliament elections fast approaching,  we are joined by Albie, Cecily, and John from the Young Scottish Fabians to discuss all things Scottish Labour and what their path to success will look like in Scotland's everchanging political landscape.

We talked about new leader Anas Sarwar's first few weeks in charge of Scottish Labour, the challenges he faces leading up to the election on May 6th, what their communications and campaign strategy has been like so far and what more they could do, as well as Labour's idea for a  'National Recovery Plan'.

Of course, we couldn't avoid the recent political theatrics within Scottish politics, discussing the Holyrood Inquiry, the emergence of Alex Salmond's Alba Party, the ebb and flow of Independence polling and what this all means for Labour, The Union, and Scotland itself.
