On this week’s show, Dr Mark McNaught is joined by Tommy Sheridan.
Mr Sheridan is a former MSP (Scottish
Socialist Party) and is the current convener of the Solidarity Party. He was a leading contributor in the establishing of the Scottish Socialist Alliance in 1996, which evolved into the Scottish Socialist Party (SSP) in 1998. He then became the convener of the party, and was elected to the Scottish Parliament in 1999 as a Glasgow representative and re-elected in 2003. During which time he co-published ‘Imagine’ an outline of the principles of socialism for a modern era.

Tommy was also active in implementing long-needed changes in Scottish law, including the Abolition of Feudal Tenure etc. (Scotland) Act 2000 and the Abolition of Poindings and Warrant Sales Act 2001, which he introduced as bills in Holyrood on 6 December 2001

Mr Sheridan, continues to be a major campaigner for Scottish Independence, and in 2013 founded the Hope Over Fear campaign, on the purpose to target the communities, estates, and villages that were being missed by the official Yes campaign. During which time Tommy addressed 121 public meetings and spoke to thousands of potential yes citizens all across Scotland. The Hope Over Fear group has promised to continue campaigning, which includes an annual rally at George Square to continue the demand for Scotland’s freedom.
