The latest edition of Scottish Left Review has been published. The current edition is a tribute to Jimmy Reid who was the driving force behind the creation of the journal.
For those not familiar with SLR it offers a space for original thinking and analysis on the political left. Contributors come from many political parties and none. This edition sets out a number of ideas for next year's elections and beyond.
I contributed an article on the Independent Budget Review, 'Three Wise men?', concluding not surprisingly, that they weren't very wise at all! There are also good articles on Scottish Water and how the Scotrail franchise could be brought back into public ownership.
