Ruth Davidson put earplugs in as good news on the Scottish economy drives her nuts!

Ever since it became clear that there was no recession coming for Scotland and that the Scottish economy is growing 4 times faster than the UK, indicators of good economic health have become a flood. Today we hear from a Manpower Group outlook survey that: ‘Hiring confidence in Scotland has doubled amongst employers’. These results echo a whole range of other evidence:

Ruth and Kezia sob as they hear Scotland is ranked as the best place in the UK to start a business. Will this good news never end?

Unemployment at record low, employment up, economy growing, youth unemployment amongst lowest in Europe, business confidence increasing, oil jobs returning, health indicators improving to world’s best: That’ll be Norway? No? Scotland!? SNP baaaad!

Scottish businesses showing signs of greater health than those in the rest of the UK

Good News: SNP Scottish Government to invest an additional £15.6 million for extra superfast broadband coverage, for homes and to boost business.

Fighting Tory austerity again, the SNP Government steps in to help 100 000 small businesses, district heating schemes and small-scale hydro schemes.

These are just the most recent of many other reports of a similar nature. You’ll notice the SNP government doing its bit. I know government doesn’t create all this by itself but it creates the conditions in which economies flourish. If we had a recession, the SNP would surely have got the blame so they deserve at least some of the credit now.

Footnote: Will this Ruth tag boost my readership? It did once before [9 707!] then people clearly began to see through my cheap ploy.

    Yes Prof. John there is plenty of good news out there about Scotland. Is there any connection between that and the Unionist’s letters to the MSM letter comments becoming more strident?

    Is ‘strident’ really the right word to use, it makes them sound, almost polite??

    I won’t look.

    I think there is a coordinated project by Tories
    in place to write letters and post comments on various sites. It has been going on since the run up to 2014 and has continued in increasing intensity.

    Do they even need co-ordination? And can you co-ordinate slavering?
