The Dinwoodie Interview

IN THE opinion of many, Angus Robertson is among the most astute political strategists in these islands and, with his decision to build the sounding board Progress Scotland, the former SNP Westminster leader has put himself at the heart of the IndyRef2 debate.

How does the Yes campaign reach out to those who voted No last time? Who were these No voters? How many among them are biddable? Where is a wooing worthless? And what might win the uncertain over? Heavy political questions, so, naturally we begin our meeting discussing not Scottish psephology but heavy metal music and what our first record purchases were. We met in a cafe’ in his native Stockbridge opposite what used to be a Woolworths, where the young Angus bought his first record. Since you ask, it was Ace of Spades by Motörhead, making that November 1980, not long after Robertsons 11th birthday. Critics calling Nats head-bangers may have a point.

Robertson, like many prominent nationalists, was born South of the Border. “I was born on the 28th of September, 1969 in Wimbledon, which is where my mother and father were working at the time, my mother a nurse at St. Thomas’s Hospital and my father a building engineer. He’d been in the Merchant Navy. They met on the Queen Mary where he was a purser and she was a ship’s nurse.”
