Naval Shipbuilding And Scottish Independence

"Does this mean that shipbuilding activity in Scotland is destined to end? On the contrary, it seems that it has the opportunity to change and, much like every other socio-economic activity, follow the urgent need for sustainable alternatives.

A Scottish National Investment Bank will be a bank driven by a public-benefit mission, not by maximising profit at the expense of customers."

Bought Politicians

"It has become my firm belief that the destruction of the UK state by the SNP and Plaid Cymru, and the purging of the financial cesspit that is London by Jeremy Corbyn, are both essential to human progress."
