The SNP needs a real change in direction - and a more focussed approach to arguing the case for independence. We need to reach out to a much wider audience and stop relying on the Scottish Parliament as the sole focus of our campaigning. It is one of the most important tools we have but cannot be the be-all and end-all of the independence argument.

Hustings Around The Country

Many of these dates are still provisional and more requests are coming in all the time. Check with local organisations for details.

NB Some hustings will be members only, others will not. I will try to identify in each instance whether that will be the case.

I am also posting dates on which I have unbreakable constituency or other commitments but which might otherwise catch the eye of potential organisers. I am aware that some of you are trawling through this list looking for gaps in the schedule, but those gaps may actually be filled by other events!!
