In this week’s episode of The Edinburgh Briefing we take a look at the general election from an Edinburgh and Scotland perspective.

Host Conor Matchett is joined by The Scotsman’s Westminster correspondent Paris Gourtsoyannis, the Evening News disabilities and equalities reporter Shona Elliott and local democracy reporter David Bol to dissect and examine the outlook for each party in Edinburgh.

They discuss the views of members of the public who had their say on what they think will happen at the polls, as well as making their predictions about the chance of a Conservative majority or the potential for a hung parliament.

The podcast team also looks at the election campaign through the eyes of voters and which party they might end up giving their crucial vote to, and why.
