"So, with no borrowing powers, Scotland could not gave accrued debt, and even as a region of the U.K., it has always been in surplus. Even under the worst governance imaginable in an independent Scotland, we would have been better off than we are now. All GERS ever shows is how badly the Union has failed Scotland."
Why don't the Scottish Government wise up to this and stop behaving as if GERS are gospel? Why don't they produce proper staistics of their own to show Scotland's true economic health.
