On Friday I attended the Co-operative Party's annual conference held in Edinburgh this year.
It was good to hear about alternative plans for the economy and how we can change society. One of the key note speakers on Friday was Scottish Labour leader Iain Gray and you can read his speech here.
One of the reasons why the event was in Scotland this year is that Scotmid Co-operative is celebrating the 150th anniversary of its founding. Scotmid stores are found across Scotland and the Morning, Noon and Night store on Blackness Road is a Scotmid Co-op store. I am a member of the Scotmid Co-op, if you want to read more about the history of Scotmid click here.
