The Yes Cafe welcomes Eric Joyce, former Labour MP and 2014 prominent 'NO' campaigner

About this event

The Yes Cafe welcomes Eric Joyce, former Labour MP and 2014 prominent 'NO' campaigner to speak. Recently on his blog, From No To Yes, Eric has publicly declared his support for a YES vote in #indtref2. His change in mind has prompted some media interest but I thought it best to hear from the man himslef. Eric has had a full and colourful career reaching Major in the army, success in academia, and as Personal Private Secretary to WM Ministers and served on the Commission for Racial Equality before becomning MP for Falkirk West in his own right. Equally, he has courted media publicity for incidents that would not show him in a good light though for one I believe it's not my/our place to judge. If we are to win #indyref2 we must engage with the NO voters who re enquisitive. A point of difference this time around will be to hear from those who have changed opinion since 2014 and Eric is early out the blocks on that front post Brexit.
