Conter Members Forum: Has Scotland Abandoned Progressive Foreign Policy?
On Thursday 7 April, from 6pm we will hold our first members’ forum.
In our first live forum for our subscribers, we ask if the idealism of a progressive Scottish policy - of 'Bairns Not Bombs' - has finally collapsed into the SNP leadership's Atlanticism.
Historian and editorial board member Chris Bambery will lead-off the discussion from 6pm on Thursday 7th April.
