Scots Marine engineers snubbed again

After the Tories shut the state of the art submarine refit shipyard at Rosyth in Scotland in favour of the poorer (but Tory voting) Devonport dockyard in the South of England, Labour continues the theme.

The VSEL dockyard in England undercut the bid on repair work to ensure the contract would not go to Govan on the Clyde in Scotland, but then VSEL admitted it couldn't handle the workload by having to subcontract BACK to Govan.

This is how labour intends to run the defence of Scotland and ensure a level playing field, they must be using the same spirit level as Mrs. Thatcher!
