ref date:4 Sep 1998 (ECON)
The Scotsman Newspaper is turning Labour
I find that Andrew Neils comments are becoming more
detached from reality these days.
Gone are the heady days when he clashed with Westminsters
lack lustre attitude towards all things Scottish.
Andrews comments today comparing the SNP to the
now troubled socialist government in Norway seem to
be the ramblings of someone in their dotage years,
frightened by the whispers leaving Whitehalls dark
No one wants a return to big unions and collective bargaining
, but Scotlands economy still offers so much to Europe and
the world that the SNP, with its many business competent
members, will run the economy at least as well as Blairs merry men who
were also accused of having no experience by the Tories.
I hope Andrew recovers soon.
