‘Call for a Scottish Constitution’ with Angus Reid and Mary Davis

Our guests will discuss their new book, which argues for the creation of a peoples’ constitution in Scotland.


‘Call for a Scottish Constitution’
with Angus Reid and Mary Davis

Thursday June 26th, 7pm

Free entry

Angus Reid and Mary Davis will discuss their new book, ‘A Modest Proposal: Call for a Constitution’ (Luath Press, 2014), which argues for the creation of a peoples’ constitution in Scotland, coinciding with the Scottish Independence Referendum. The book lays out terms for the agreement of the people, by which governments can be bound to act ethically and equitably in the interest of those they represent.

As part of Reid and Davis’ campaign, a poem containing the five central principles of a proposed constitution has been displayed in public places across Scotland, including the Scottish parliament, the TUC headquarters in Glasgow and on a barn next to the 8th tee of Donald Trump’s golf course in Aberdeenshire.

Angus Reid is an independent artist, film-maker and poet living and working in Edinburgh. Mary Davis is Professor of Labour History formerly at London Metropolitan University and now a Visiting Professor at Royal Holloway, University of London.
