In the latest edition of The Week in Holyrood, the weekly Scottish politics programme on Paisley FM 107.5, Parliamentary Editor Charles Fletcher tracks the fall of Scotland’s Finance Secretary Derek Mackay and MSP for Renfrewshire North and West, who has his constituency office in Renfrew, close to Renfrew Town Hall.
Mr Mackay has resigned after pestering a schoolboy by sending hundreds of text messages. He quit only hours before he was due to deliver the annual Scottish Government Budget. As Charles reports, the Budget speech was delivered by Finance Minister Kate Forbes.
There’s also an update from the US Election race; a visit to the Glasgow climate conference launch; and what are we like one week after leaving the EU? A busy show!
The Week in Holyrood with Charles Fletcher, Sunday 9 February at 8.00-9.00am. Produced for Paisley FM by Caledonia Media – Bringing Holyrood home. You can listen to the programme prior to broadcast on 107.5 FM and DAB digital radio across Glasgow. below:
