Scotland being sold off wholesale

Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in Scotland or England is being sold off.

Olwyn MacDonald, a councillor for Caol on the outskirts of Fort William (a town at the foot of Ben Nevis) said: "I am astounded about this sale. They will be selling the ground beneath our feet soon. This has been done without any discussion with locals. These are our mountains. Are the powers that be just selling Scotland off to the highest bidder?"

Yes they are - its called asset stripping. Our companies move South, the land goes to any bidder, our natural resources are plundered and taxed and used to put expensive murals in South East England and white elephant parliament buildings in Edinburgh.
