THE First Minister has been in China on another of his delusions of grandeur trips and conveniently absent from the Clyde shipbuilding crisis debate. Meanwhile, in the real world, we still wait for an answer to why “getting together” to solve the Grangemouth crisis is good but sticking together as the UK is bad. Or why the rest of the UK, should Scotland be separated after a Yes vote, would abandon their own shipyards and send their orders to what the Clyde will be: a river and industry in a foreign country. Those suggesting otherwise really are living in a fantasy world. Thousands of jobs on the Clyde and elsewhere could be sacrificed on the SNP political altar.
Do we really want people capable of doing this and with this way of thinking breaking up the UK and running a separated Scotland?
