Scottish ship building finished?
The Govan ship yards, that built many of the worlds finest and largest ships
is now up for sale. Its parent group cant compete with the tin-tubs
coming out of SE Asia any longer.
The Rover plant at Longbridge in England led to a 150 million pound sweetner being offered to
keep it open, lets hope Blair and his Scottish hating luddites treat the
Scots with as much sensitivity.
And by the way, labour voters are sure all pigs fly backwards.....
