Ungagged on the Campaign for Scottish Independence

Reading Time: 1 minute

Ungagged is a podcast from the left, based in Scotland, but like many media outlets we have editorial from across the world.

We started Ungagged with two aims. One- as a forum for a wide range of commentators across the left to give their views without prejudice. And two to ensure, in the mix of the new international media, Scotland has a positive, progressive voice.

Nicola Sturgeon has indicated that Scotland is back on the campaign for independence. We, as a small media organisation, support independence and hope to include editorial from the pro- independence left in the coming months.

The left in Scotland has many different views on how independence will be reached, and on what an independent Scotland will look like. We hope to give those different voices a platform.

Scotland has been a centre left voting country for many, many years. Equality, the welfare of all and Internationalism come at the very top of the values the Scottish electorate- and that is what Ungagged hopes to reflect.
