I see the SG is backing the conversion of the old Isola plant, in Cumbernauld, to accomodate large scale film sets.
STV gave the statement "from Hollywood to Broadwood", actually, it's in Wardpark.

Just heard Ian mcwhirter say that you can't base an economy on one volatile natural resource and that independence was off the agenda for a generation.
Correct, although a bit late in the day for him.

If that was the case, surely the SG would have ensured that it was NOT corrupted?

GERS fails to take account of Scottish Goods exported via English Ports Whisky exports alone are worth an estimated 4bln It also does not include income from tourism or Businesses who have there UK HQs in London or elsewhere. In all GERs figures are a complete waste of paper as it is a massively flawed system while not corrupt per say shall we rather say that they were designed to be skewed in a particular way

Alex Salmond had always said that oil was a 'bonus not basis'

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-s ... s-23389830

Despite all the media hysteria and sudden fall in oil price it has barely registered a 1% move for Scotland.

If only the media applied the same logic to the UK...

Any update on the future of the Steelworks, Shipyards & Defence structure being safer with a No vote?

Just watched the BBC news. It seems that the Tories won the Scottish election (well thats how it appeared on BBC)! I was a bit surprised, as I thought the SNP would stroll it. Ah well, the Beeb is always right, and thats why we are Bitter Together.

At least their influence is declining as shown by another increased vote for the SNP - Labour pushed into 3rd, Lib Dems to 5th and UKIP disappearing made it all the sweeter.

The tory triumphalism is very short term - they still can't do a single thing but they've now got the responsibility of being the face of the Union in Scotland and will have to defend Cameron / Osborne / Boris at every turn to back it up.

Labour will also have to become an autonomous party to survive so can't keep defending the union when they can't even manage a union within their party... Tick tock
