Jennifer Dempsie webchat - An independent guide to asset stripping

JOIN Jennifer Dempsie at 12pm today for a webchat to discuss her column in today’s paper.

Discussing the emphasis on Scotland’s share of the UK debt conveniently ignoring the nation’s entitlement to a share in the UK’s assets, she writes: “There is a serious risk that we are launching into a constitutional debate which is severely skewed. If we are to have proper discussion about Scotland’s share of the debt, the discussions cannot have credibility without thorough and independent analysis of our share of UK assets. No accountant does their books with only a liabilities column, there has to be an assets one too.”
