PODCAST: Interview with Scottish Government minister Jamie Hepburn

Scottish Government minister for employability and training Jamie Hepburn spoke to CommonSpace after he kicked off at the 77th STUC Youth Conference in Clydebank

THE STUC Youth Committee held its annual conference in Clydebank at the weekend, where there was lots of discussion about better conditions for young workers. 

In his speech to the conference, Scottish Government minister Jamie Hepburn discussed what was on the agenda for the youth workers conference, but also he discussed fair work for young people. 

CommonSpace reporter David Thomson managed to speak to Hepburn about the issues raised in his speech, and whether EU nationals should be allowed to stay in Scotland once the Brexit deal has been negotiated.

Is there an easy way to get these podcasts onto an old fashioned iPod? (Other than faffing about downloading it and adding it to iTunes manually that is.)

My ultimate goals in life was to startup a family with a man who permanently wants me always as the only woman in his life, a man that only wants a future with me and his desires to be with and around me to be uncontrollable. A man that will turn a deaf ear to nothing or anyone trying to separate us.
My goals where achieved 2 years ago; I must confess that our marriage was fine until someone somewhere started interfering, pushing and putting negative thoughts in his head out of envy. As days goes by, the atmosphere around us looked fine and automatically did a complete 360, we went from living together, talking, texting and such all-day every-day to barely anything at all. We separated because of the rumor that I couldn’t bear a child. It was a lie told by someone who envied our peaceful marriage.
I sought the help of Dr. Wakina via (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com) according to reviews I read online and on radio about his work. I found total justice, redemption and restoration through his love spell after months of broken heart. Our enemies where proven wrong the moment my husband comeback to me. I believe there will also go blind after seeing me pregnant.
All hail Dr. Wakina for reinstituting my marriage.
