Wireless cash excluded from free Scotland calculations

London banked billions of pounds during its selling off of another public asset, sections of the electromagnetic spectrum to cell phone companies.

As long as these companies keep their towers and arrays away from homes, schools,nurseries and hospitals and admit their handsets probably cause all kinds of biological damage, TAKE THEIR MONEY for bandwidth. Scotlands share of this translated through to number of cell users is probably as much as the combined North sea oil and gas revenue for a couple of years.

The Scots public gets exposed to the radiation from the towers and London keeps the cash. Good deal that.
