I will be in the audience tomorrow for BBC Radio Scotland's Brian's Big Debate.
WHERE: GTG Building, 1330 SOUTH STREET, GLASGOW G14 0BJ
WHEN: Friday 21st February
TIMES: Doors open at the venue at 11:00am the show is on air from 12pm - 1pm
We are invited to submit audience questions on current issues & I have submitted these 3. I think the chances of any of them being chosen are comparable with the chances of any member of Scotland's 4th party being invited on the panel.
1 - With Mr Barroso pointing out the difficulty of an independent Scotland getting into the EU is it time for the SNP to decide that their policy of joining on any terms, without even allowing the people a referendum, is unwise.
2 - The SNP's white paper promises that after separation there would remain a common electricity regime and England would still put subsidies into renewables in Scotland. With Scotland to be 100% renewable by 2020, is it safe to promise this.
3 - With the Cowdenbeath by election UKIP is the 4th party in Scotland; the Wythenshawe by election makes it the 2nd in the north, it is widely expected that in the EU elections, the only UK election carried out under an uncorrupt electoral system, UKIP will come first. With the BBC's legal duty of "balance" when would it be proper to be allowed on here?
