On 18 September Scotland votes on whether to become independent. Scotland this summer is alive with civic debate on this momentous decision. Robin McAlpine and the Radical Independence Campaign are at the most exciting cutting edge of this debate, as they imagine and argue for a totally new, better Scotland. What does this mean for the North of England? Can we get a new start too? Come to hear and discuss with:
Robin McAlpine, Director, The Jimmy Reid Foundation
Paul Salveson, The Hannah Mitchell Foundation
