SNP Independence Strategy Debate
The route to independence concerns everyone in the Yes movement and there is by no means consensus on the path that will lead to success.
Scottish Independence Podcasts support Scottish Independence but we are not party political. We will be dropping in on the various party conferences to see how they propose to get us there.
We start with the 2023 SNP conference. The SNP independence strategy debate was a key – and lengthy – item on the agenda.
Indypodcasters Fiona and Marlene navigate the key parts of the debate, including the vote at the end. If you want a 1min summary of the proceedings before you listen to the debate, then click here for SNP Indy Debate Summary.
