Scots see more business head South of border
Its been the same for years, with general accident and now with equitable life, we see cash, jobs and control flowing south to large English run companies
who leave a few staff in Scotland to answer phones.
The Halifax now owns Equitable Life and people cannot get their money
out due to 'computer issues'.
More like the embattled insurer is towing the line of its new owners who'll
show as much respect for Scottish interests as every company "buying Scotland" has shown....
