Deputy UK Prime Minister Dominic Raab may have resigned in the wake of bullying allegations against him, but now there's a push to remove him as an MP; and some of Queen singer Freddie Mercury's "exquisite clutter" is to be sold.

A week is certainly a long time in Scottish politics these days and we begin with our thoughts (within the boundaries of the Scots Law of Contempt) on the arrest of Peter Murrell and Police Scotland's search of his and Nicola Sturgeon's home.This inevitably leads us on to the current state of the SNP given the admission of the interim Chief Executive, Mike Russell, and the new leader Humza Yousaf that the party is not in a great place right now.This week also saw the battle lines being drawn up for the next UK General Election with the launch of the Labour Party's attack ads. We ask what the thinking was behind this strategy and speculate on its potential to backfire.Labour, under Starmer, has wrapped itself in the Union Flag and trumpeted its "patriotism" and the media is currently awash with dewy eyed enthusiasm over the coronation of King Charles. Lesley reflects on not just this spectacle and the central role of the monarchy in the UK's class ridden society but the future constitution of an independent Scotland.All of this plus the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Good Friday Agreement and President Joe Biden's visit to both the Republic and Northern Ireland . ★ Support this podcast ★
Mid-Atlantic - conversations about US, UK and world politics
Today we speak to Scottish pundit Lesley Riddoch an award-winning broadcaster, journalist and author about Scotland's new first minister and the issues faced by the SNP.Humza Yousaf has pledged to be a "first minister for all of Scotland" after being chosen by party members to replace Nicola Sturgeon. Mr Yousaf, who had been serving as health secretary, also vowed to "kickstart" a grassroots campaign that would "ensure our drive for independence is in fifth gear".Here are some of the other issues that are looming in his in-tray:The mammoth task required fixing the problems across health and social care. More than 600,000 people are on a waiting list; A&E departments are regularly full; one in every six patients in hospital cannot get out, despite being ready to be discharged.Education: Before the pandemic, the Scottish government saw education as its defining mission. It wanted to be judged by its progress in raising attainment and helping children and young people from disadvantaged areas. Inevitably, the pandemic has thrown up new problems which are still real issues.Scotland's business lobbies hope for a reset in their relations with Bute House. Several feel their concerns have taken a low priority under Nicola Sturgeon.Climate change: Tackling climate change was one of Nicola Sturgeon's priorities, with the Scottish Parliament setting some of the most ambitious targets in the world. But year after year those targets have been missed and the government's independent advisers have said Scotland's lead has been lost.The government's track record on the NHS is never far from a political rammy, but increasingly those working within health and social care are asking policymakers to step back from arguing among themselves and give some candid consideration to what kind of reform is needed. The new FM says his priority is to recover and reform the NHS but he won't deviate from its founding principle, to be free at the point of use. Hosted on Acast.

There are two questions that accompany any political scandal. What did you know and when did you know it? After questioning Nicola Sturgeon's husband Peter Murrell for eleven hours yesterday, police are back at their Glasgow house, and there's still a blue evidence tent in the garden. It comes just a week after the leadership election of new SNP First Minister Humza Yousaf, seen as the Sturgeon succession candidate. So what should we make of the timing of all this? And what are the political implications if it was pre arranged?We ask the leader of the SNP in Westminster, Stephen Flynn.

La semana pasada juró el cargo de primer ministro de Escocia Humza Yousaf, antiguo secretario de Sanidad de Nicola Sturgeon que el pasado mes de febrero anunció que dimitía, tanto del cargo de primer ministro como de la presidencia del Partido Nacional Escocés (SNP). Esto dio lugar a unas primarias de las que salió vencedor Yousaf, que se convierte de este modo en el sexto primer ministro de Escocia y en el primero proveniente de una minoría étnica. Es también muy joven, tiene sólo 37 años, y el primer musulmán en liderar un partido importante en el Reino Unido. Aparte de los diputados propios, Yousaf contó con el apoyo de Los Verdes, con quienes previamente había llegado a un acuerdo de coalición. Las últimas elecciones escocesas se celebraron en 2021, por lo que las siguientes habrán de convocarse para 2026. Tiene Yousaf tres años por delante y una agenda muy cargada porque la situación política en el Reino Unido anda extremadamente enrarecida, el descontento es generalizado y la polarización política es cada día más visible. Los conservadores se mantienen en Downing Street, pero con la calle y las encuestas en contra. Para los laboristas eso es una oportunidad, pero también para Yousaf, que hereda un buen número de problemas sin resolver de su predecesora. Entre ellos el mayor y más espinoso de todos es el de la independencia de Escocia, un asunto que late desde hace años, que motivó un referéndum en 2014 y que se volvió a replantear tras el Brexit. Sturgeon se comprometió a pelear por ello de nuevo exigiendo en Londres otro referéndum porque las condiciones habían cambiado radicalmente con respecto a las que había en el referéndum de 2014. Yousaf es partidario de un nuevo referéndum como la práctica totalidad de los nacionalistas escoceses, pero carece del carisma y de la autoridad de Sturgeon. Ganó las primarias por poco, por solamente un 52% de los votos, frente a Kate Forbes, ex secretaria de Economía de Sturgeon. El candidato de Sturgeon era Yousaf, pero los resultados de Forbes, una evangélica de talante conservador, demostró que hay muchas diferencias dentro del nacionalismo escocés más allá de la independencia. Cuando Sturgeon viajaba a Londres para demandar un segundo referéndum presumía de hablar en nombre de la media Escocia que les votaba, Yousaf no lo tendrá tan fácil ya que casi la mitad de los militantes nacionalistas rechazaron su candidatura. Eso será un problema difícil de sortear. Yousaf deberá, por lo tanto, apoyarse en lo único que realmente une al partido: la independencia de Escocia lo antes posible mediante un referéndum vinculante y acordado con el Gobierno británico como el de 2014. Pero ni Yousaf ni nadie en el SNP tiene plan creíble para esquivar el veto que Westminster ha puesto sobre un nuevo referéndum y que, en definitiva, fue lo que colocó a Sturgeon y su Gobierno en vía muerta. Para tratar este tema hoy nos acompaña Andrea en La Contra. Andrea no vive en Escocia, sino en Inglaterra, pero el tema se lo tiene trabajado. Allí en el Reino Unido esto de Escocia es algo que nunca termina de salir de la agenda informativa ya que amenaza la existencia misma de aquel país. · Canal de Telegram: https://t.me/lacontracronica · “Hispanos.

It's been a tricky time in the banking sector after the collapse of two US banks and UBS's takeover of Credit Suisse - could this week be a bit calmer? The Scottish National Party announces its new leader today - so what are businesses in Scotland hoping for from the successor to Nicola Sturgeon? And in video games, the Competition and Markets Authority has softened its position on Microsoft's takeover of 'Call of Duty' developer Activision Blizzard; will this mean regulators in the US and EU will follow suit?
Humza Yousaf made a few big promises as he succeeded Nicola Sturgeon as SNP leader – including healing divisions in his party, redoubling efforts to lift people out of poverty and, of course, Scottish independence. On the Sky News Daily, Sally Lockwood is joined by our Scotland correspondent Connor Gillies and Shona Craven, columnist at The National, as we look at what we can expect from his leadership and discuss how he will measure up against his predecessors.

The Majority Report with Sam Seder
It's an EmMajority Report Thursday! She hosts Natalia Mehlman-Petrzela, professor of history at The New School, to discuss her recent book Fit Nation: The Gains And Pains Of America's Exercise Obsession. Then she is joined by Daniel Finn, features editor at Jacobin, to discuss his recent piece "Britain's Power Elite Has Defeated Its Challengers by Creating a Political Wasteland". Emma first runs through updates on another Fed interest rate increase, a Federal appeals judge ruling against Trump, Biden shutting down the White House's COVID response team, the Senate voting to keep the AUMF, the Chicago Teachers' union backing Brandon Johnson, and various updates on far-right challenges to democracy and Queer life, before parsing through Bernie Sanders' confrontation with Moderna over their planned vaccine price gauge. Natalia Mehlman-Petrzela then joins as she and Emma dive right into the history of America's fitness obsession and the complicated push and pull between progress with self-expression and corporations capitalizing on developing misogynist and capitalist expectations. First, Mehlman-Petrzela looks to the legacy of Jack LaLanne, the first Fifties fitness guru, and how his programs served to start a shift from seeing fitness as an ego-driven hobby to a fundamental aspect of self-improvement and health with broad consensus. After parsing through LaLanne's particular marketing to suburban housewives, Natalia and Emma tackle the development of the fitness industry not around communal ideas of public health, but hyper-individualized concepts of self-improvement that nestled somewhere between labor and leisure, and how this saw success across the political spectrum, before wrapping up the interview with the impact of the 2008 financial crisis, fitness' full transformation into a consumptive industry, and the hyper-atomization that we've seen since develop over the last few years. Daniel Finn and Emma then parse through his recent piece responding to the Economist's dubbing of a new era of British politics as a new “Great Moderation,” which attempts to paint the active expulsion of the left wing from politics as a return to a politics of managerial competence after a period of populist demagoguery. Parsing through this, Finn tackles the very-much-still-relevant presence of the populist far-right in British politics and why that is seen as valuable to the center-right establishment, before he and Emma step back to assess how the British establishment was able to expunge the left wing of the labor party from mainstream politics. They first look to the material foundation of the 2008 financial crisis that was met with a decade of British austerity which completely crippled the working class, also exploring the two challenges it faced: one in the form of Scottish independence led by Nicola Sturgeon and the other in the emergence of a Labour movement led by Jeremy Corbyn. Wrapping up the interview, Finn walks Emma through the process through which the British establishment, bolstered by the mainstream press, was able to fearmonger over wedge-issue culture wars, taking a single element of a popular platform (trans rights for Sturgeon and pro-Palestine support for Corbyn) and painting it as a broad strokes undemocratic attack on a minority group. And in the Fun Half: Emma is joined by Brandon Sutton and Matt Binder as they talk with Brian from Flagstaff about gun buyback's potential in the US, also watching Russell Brand rep the Rumble brand, and the recent TikTok congressional hearing. Alena from VA on the coverage of Marianne Williamson, Charlie Kirk and Chaya Raichik use TikTok to connect the transphobic and anti-Chinese moral panics, and we get the previews of Sam's appearance on the PBD podcast, plus, your calls and IMs!
