Show 241 - Alex Cole-Hamilton

The new leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats gives a highly personal and entertaining interview about politics, faith and life. Alex shares his plans for the party and the incredible stories about how he was almost recruited for MI6 and how he saved his daughter's life. What is the future of the Scottish Lib Dems and how do they stand out in the crowded marketplace of Scottish politics? How does he plan to hold such a formidable opponent to account? And why did he become a Quaker? You'll find all the answers inside. 

 

Warning: Alex also talks about the PTSD he suffered after witnessing a suicide in Edinburgh, a conversation you may find distressing.
