Today is GERSday – the day when the Government Expenditure and  Revenue Scotland statement is published

 

It's funny how there was nothing nothing nothing about the case from Jan right up to our fundraising and when it became clear we were going to hit our target, suddenly the press goes mental and everyone's an expert. Let me be clear. NOBODY knows the ins and outs of the case

One seemingly innocuous quote to the National says it all about the Section 30 case and the panic at Westminster.. Until now, Lord Keen has not been involved. Now the UK Government is bringing him in personally it would seem.

Richard Leonard’s call for a Scottish Green New Deal is meaningless without a simultaneous call for independence to let it be delivered

‘New GERS data fundamentally makes the case for Scottish independence.’

…”Scotland possesses natural wealth unequalled by any other small northern European country, none of which have the supposed advantage of having their economies run by Westminster.”..

…”Those nations have far lower levels of natural wealth than Scotland. Even Norway, which has produced almost the same amount of oil as Scotland, is not as naturally wealthy overall. Unlike Scotland, Norway does not have whisky exports of £25 per second, Scotland’s reputation for quality food and drink, and it is not the home of golf or of the world’s largest cultural festival that helps drive our tourism industry.”..
