Good news for Scotland’s economy

index

As you know I’m talking-up Scotland so I’ve extracted the objective, factual, good news from the Bank of Scotland report today and ignored all the gloom about Brexit which will supposedly destroy it all:

  1. Scottish business is enjoying its longest run of expansion in nearly two-and-a-half years
  2. Companies across Scotland have seen increased employment numbers alongside growing new business and orders.
  3. The Confederation of British Industry (CBI) found a majority of UK firms aimed to increase the number of highly-skilled jobs in the next few years.
  4. Last week’s GDP data from the Office for National Statistics showed growth of 0.8% in Scotland running at four times the UK figure, with Scottish unemployment also at a record low of 4%.

If you read the whole BoS thingy, you’ll see they’ve put in so much non-factual and negative opinion, you’d never remember the above positive facts. It’s classic early 20th Century Scots’ ‘Aye but…’ and ‘Dinna get too sure o yersel wee man.’
