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 little corridors.

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.
