Rail Contract May Not Help Scottish Industry

Not content with extending the contract for First ScotRail, the SNP may be on the brink of awarding a multi-millon pund carriage contract to a company that will have no benefit to the Scottish economy.

The Nats claim that they have the Scottish economy at the heart of their agenda. Yet if the contract for 120 carraiges for Glasgow/Ayr and Glasgow Airport routes goes to Siemens it will mean work in the Czech Republic and Germany rather than than the Bombardier bid which will ensure jobs in English and Scottish companies.

So one wonders just what an independent Scotland might lead to if the SNP currently seem encapable of buying Scottish.
