Once more in that clearly pro-Russian and nationalist rag, Insider, we read today:
‘Private sector business activity picks up further. Latest Royal Bank of Scotland PMI shows growth and staff numbers accelerating from July – when it rose at its strongest rate in four years – but output charges also increased. Momentum in Scotland’s private sector economy has been building since the start of the second quarter. Private sector business activity expanded again in August, leading to a third monthly rise in backlogs of work.’
And, only London, I suspect, is experiencing worse:
‘The backlog of work at Scottish private sector companies rose midway through the third quarter. The rate of accumulation, albeit only modest, was the second-strongest of all 12 monitored UK regions.’
When oh when will the SNP stop interfering with business?
