Superb column.

Forgive my ignorance, but how influential is Holyrood? What's the typical readership?

FemaleAndLearning Sun 19-Sep-21 09:04:47

A good piece. I like the long list of where women were and what we were doing pre GRA.


YetAnotherSpartacus Sun 19-Sep-21 09:06:20

That was an absolutely excellent piece of writing.

I'm so pissed off that our elected representatives are considering leaving politics rather than addressing the issue properly.

That is a really good piece of writing and I just wish some of our politicians could get that angry.

Superb column.

I wouldn't consider it influential. The best way I can describe it is as a "trade" magazine for Scottish politics. It goes to MSPs, government organisations, businesses and charities with a lobbying role. It's not on newsstands and very few members of the general public will be aware of it, far less read it.

I think it is important as MSPs read it and it helps to get the message across that people are waking up, this is becoming a mainstream concern and that is what they are most afraid of.

I was particularly heartened to hear that Ministers are worried and considering their political future. That's huge.

This is brilliant. So well written.

What IS it that Holyrood does to their links?! It's the comma. It wrecks it every time.

Excellent article, though. Thanks for sharing.

Kaye Adams will be talking about GRC on BBC Radio Scotland this morning, some time between 9- 12. She will be interviewing two people “ with very different viewpoints “ she says.
