Former Scotland Secretary David Mundell calls for those in favour of keeping the United Kingdom… well, united, to not shy away from sharing the “emotional” reasons for the union. He joins Christopher Hope to react to First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s vote of no confidence triumph, to delve into the impact of the Salmond-Sturgeon row on upcoming elections, and to lay out why he believes there can’t be a Great Britain without Scotland.
Also on the podcast: former Attorney General Sir Geoffrey Cox on why he thinks some of the reaction to the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill is “hysterical”, and London editor of German newspaper die Welt, Stefanie Bolzen on the EU’s latest spat over the AstraZeneca vaccine.
