Away from (occasionally) writing on politics and (more frequently) football, I am - for my many sins - involved with Edinburgh branch of the English-Speaking Union.
We are running a series of events about different aspects of the independence debate.
The first of these will take place on 29th March, 6pm at ESU Scotland's gallery with Alex Massie, former Washington correspondent of The Scotsman, contributor to Foreign Policy, and Spectator journalist speaking on the topic:
Strange Love: Or why the Tories should learn to stop worrying and love the SNP''
The other spring talks are:
26th April - Joan McAlpine MSP (title to be confirmed0
31st May - Professor John Curtice - Independence and Polling.
If you'd like to attend please contact Edinburghbranch@esuscotland.org.uk for a space. There will be a small charge to cover wine etc at the event.
