Saturday and Sunday – was in Stirling. Stayed over on the branch organiser’s sofa. Had a pile of work to do, so headed there early, and brought my laptop to start work on a branch movie poster campaign, and to knit together a reasonably complex short film about the RMT’s struggle to keep the guards on trains.
The Scottish Socialist Party’s Richie Venton is great at this stuff. He knows the arguments intimately, and can spellbind with lucid oratory, especially in a town-hall environment. He spoke for around eight minutes outside Holyrood, and getting it down to a quick-cut 3 minutes – while retaining most of the juicy material – took quite a while.
We went to Glasgow Green, to work alongside the rest of the assembled party at the Yes rally. Colin Fox – one-take Foxy – spoke about why we were there. Enjoy!
