Join us for a special conversation with Kate Forbes. In her first public comments since she lost out on the SNP leadership to Humza Yousaf, the Highland MSP, who came a close second in the SNP leadership election, says the accusation that her economic policies were a ‘lurch to the right’ was bizarre, and simply “spin and smear.” She speaks about her campaign almost being derailed in the early days by the reaction to her membership of the Free Church of Scotland and her views on gay marriage. She discusses whether the contest was a test of her faith. She outlines her reaction to Humza Yousaf's cabinet positions and the role of the Green party in the coalition agreement with the SNP.
