America – A Second Term President Trump; Catherine Philp on the panel

Welcoming the strong presence at the Festival of writers from The Times and The Sunday Times, from north and south of the border, Richard Bogie – Managing Director of News Scotland – said: “This is an excellent Festival of Politics programme, and I am delighted that we are fielding such a strong team of writers from The Times and The Sunday Times during the four days. Investing in journalism is central to the success of News Scotland titles, ensuring that our readers are well-informed about the major issues happening across Scotland, the UK and wider world. I look forward to our writers bringing their substantial expertise to bear throughout this year’s Festival.”
