>In the run up to the Scottish election campaign, some high profile debates will be taking place to explore the main issues. I’ll post details of as many as I hear about so that you can get tickets if you want.
Scotland on Sunday, in conjunction with Weber Shandwick and Scotland Votes have set up a series of 4 debates on successive Mondays beginning on 7th March with the relevant spokespeople from the four main parties. In the interests of fairness, I really have to wonder why the Greens aren’t going to be there, though.
Anyway, all events take place in the Scotsman building on Holyrood Road on the following dates:
Monday 7th March: Education. Annoyingly, at school run time, 3pm
Monday 14th March: Justice. At an equally annoying 3.30 pm
Monday 21st March: Health. At a much more civilised 12.30 pm
Monday 28th March: Economy. Also at 12.30 pm.
I don’t have to be too annoyed about missing the first two, though, as they will be streamed live on the Scotland Votes website and I will be able to tweet through them to my heart’s content.
Anyone can get tickets for them, and they’re free – so register here for as many sessions as you can attend. I hope to meet some of you at the last two.
