Chronologically Gifted Voters

A few weeks back, IndyLive Radio broadcast an interview with Ruth Wishart called Bringing Chronologically Gifted Scots to Yes.

Chronologically Gifted is Ruth’s name for us older voters. Gifted because we’re still here, still breathing, and very importantly – still voting. You can listen to the interview here:

After broadcasting Ruth’s interview, the Daytime Show team talk to a panel of four people from four P4Indy Groups: Alan Logue from Greater Glasgow, Julia Laurie from Edinburgh, Lindsay Neil from Selkirk, and Morag Muego from Dumfries. Listen to what they think it will take to persuade more older voters round to Yes.

Got any suggestions of your own on how to get more chronologically gifted votes to Yes?

He leads small study groups on his ideas and the thinking behind them. And in this Covid pandemic he has moved to digital meetings and digital study groups!

You can listen to the talk and the Q&As afterwards here:
