Snuppie Economic Policy #96


BBC News is reporting that the same Scottish Executive which Diageo called “financially illiterate” is offering to reimbursed failed tender bids for the new Forth Road Bridge by up to £5 millions, and £10 millions for successful bidders if the scheme were to be cancelled.

The sound we have just heard is of Adam Smith turning in his grace.

Next time, I will explain to readers how one can receive change of a shilling from a sixpence.

    Amusingly, the reason for this is not SNP policy but HM Treasury advice.

    You should really check stuff like that out before going into print!

    Yes, ‘cos otherwise the wider project is one of clear foresight and meticulous planning.

    The idea that non-Europeans don’t have any moral agency, and do whatever the Fat Controller tells them to, or cannot help but react against the Fat Controller, is distasteful enough; but when Scots are thought the same, it’s postively weird.
