I am addressing the plenary of the Scottish Independence Convention at the Scottish Parliament in Holyrood on Thursday 4 February at 6.30pm. The subject of my address is
Might is Right: Torture and the Moral Void of UK Foreign Policy Since Robin Cook.
As ever, I won’t have a text, but I expect to cover extraordinary rendition, Iraq and Afghanistan – and why an independent Scotland ought not to maintain a common defence policy and armed forces with the rump United Kingdom.
The meeting is open (and free, I think) but you have to book in with the Scottish Independence Convention. Contact details are here:
