There was good news from the SNP elections at the weekend.

Both Kairin van Sweeden and Tim Rideout were elected to the SNP policy development committee. Both are committed to MMT and a Scottish currency.

Perhaps as important, Chris Hanlon is the Policy Development Convener and so runs this committee. He also happens to be a cofounder of MMT Scotland and is on the SNP NEC as a result of bein this committee's convenor.

It is not my job to do party politics, and the SNP is not the only pro-independence party in Scotland. But it is good to see MMT exponents winning places where they can influence debate.

I wish them good luck with the frustrations to come.
