Beyond the Noise: Scotland, Brexit and the European elections

Beyond the Noise with David Jamieson is a weekly podcast with CommonSpace journalist David Jamieson, where he gets behind the 24/7 news cycle and gets to heart of issues, trying to find the substance behind the headlines.

IN THIS week's podcast Jamieson is joined by CommonSpace editor Ben Wray to discuss the European elections from Scotland to Brussels, London to Rome.

They discuss:

00:40 – What can we learn from the election results for the SNP and Labour in Scotland?

12:04 – What are the problems surrounding any move in Labour’s position towards a second referendum on leaving the EU.

16:18 – What is the far right’s strategy? Does its diminishing interest in breaking from the EU establishment make it less or more dangerous?

20:23 – Are we seeing the emergence of politics split between the far right and a re-energised centre?
