Lorna’s video blog

Lorna Slater

Starting at 103 days to go to the Holyrood 2021 elections, Green candidate Lorna Slater records her thoughts through the campaign.

In the thick of it

Radio and TV interviews, manifesto launch, hustings – one day deep in the heart of the campaign.

Back down to earth

A bit of a breather for Lorna ahead of the game-changing election week in four weeks time.

Chalk and cheese

Engender’s women’s hustings couldn’t have been more different to last week’s leaders’ debate.

Debate practice

Scary stuff this – Lorna muses over the prospect of her first debate on air.

My favourite subject

Lorna’s been invited to give a guest lecture for students at Napier University.

Clean clothes on

Two exciting events this week: Scotland’s Citizen’s Assembly is presenting their final report, and the first of a series of Bright Green debates.

The theme of this week is rest! Before the campaign gets going in earnest, Lorna’s making the most of a week without meetings.

Lucky for some

How much easier commuting for Edinburgh-based MSPs
