Interest rate hike courtesy of London pummels Scots industry
The Bank of England hiked base rates .25% yesterday to help control the
ridiculous increases in house prices seen in South East England.
This is the same scenario that Thatcher precipitated before her government plunged
Scotland and England into recession in the early 1980's.
Some bleeding heart Scottish business men are whining it is hurting their
profits and exports, but these same idiots do not have the gumption
to give the finger to London and back the SNP calls for independence!
Instead they hang onto their frilly coat tails like little girls on a stormy night,
clinging to mummy (London) in the vain hope it will all get better.
