I’m taking part in a conference organised by Holyrood Magazine conferences, taking place in central London on 3 July 2012. It’s got an impressive line-up of speakers, including Henry McLeish, Jeremy Purvis and Jim Mather, MPs including Stewart Hosie, Margaret Curran and Danny Alexander, as well as a clutch of academics. The aim of the event is to survey the current shifting ground of Scottish politics, as the independence referendum comes seriously onto the agenda. I’m taking part in a panel discussion about economic and financial issues, along with Brian Ashcroft of Strathclyde University, Drew Scott of Edinburgh University, and Jeremy Purvis, the former MSP now involved in Reform Scotland’s Devolution Plus initiative.
Details of the event, including booking arrangements, are here. It should be a good event, though it’s also rather expensive.
