What’s Alex Salmond’s answer to banks and businesses taking a hit due to independence referendum?
I am loathe to use financial statistics to prove anything but the latest news, ahead of the Scottish Independence vote, is interesting.
As I write the pound sterling is at its lowest rate for months following the You Gov poll showing the “yes” campaign achieving a small lead.
Royal Bank of Scotland and other banks have taken a hit as have some large Scottish companies and I am left wondering what Alex Salmond’s answer to this major hint of uncertainty might be?
He’s been told by George Osborne that he can’t keep the pound sterling backed by the Bank of England — so that leaves the understandable Scottish pride and passion.
However, that won’t pay the rent will it?
