Scottish building sector work UP 10% as UK slumps 29% DOWN


In Insider yesterday:

Scottish building firms had a strong start to the year because they are not over-dependent on overseas workers, says an industry body. A study for the Federation of Master Builders found construction SMEs with more work was up a net 10% on the previous quarter in Scotland. That compared with a dip of 29% UK wide, the first fall in six years.’

This is an astonishing divergence, suggesting once more, objective evidence of a thriving and well-managed economy, well-placed for independence within the EU.

Earlier reports of the same trend:

Unemployment in Tory UK is 15% higher than in Scotland

Unemployment in Scotland 13% lower than UK and wages higher AFTER SNP government gives businesses more than £4 billion in rates relief

Further evidence of better employment practices in Scotland

Unemployment in Scotland below UK level and employment better paid

Or see below the merciful other reality of employment in modern Scotland?

Scotland’s ‘trends of high employment and low unemployment’ persist but our media prefer to headline only a wee bit of bad news

As oil prices soar and exploration increases, employment in Scotland’s oil industry returns to record levels

    Is that a photo of Joke Ma’Coalbunker, with his new kilt (and a beard)? Don’t know if I didn’t prefer him with his “skirt” on.

    Presumably hard hats are voluntary when your head is made of wood.

      Sorry. Its Lard Joke now, isn’t it?
      One of those Labour Lords who want to do away with Peerages by sitting in the Upper House for a half century or so!

      Important discussions on how to strip low paid UK pensioners of a few “freedie’s” they worked hard (through wars, and ration books, and a stop-go economy etc) all their life’s to get.
