You know, Spud, GERS is all bollocks.
And yet here’s someone who is, I assume, using those same figures (via email press release):
GDP FIGURES A WAKE UP CALL FOR A SCOTTISH POLITICAL ELITE WHO ARE OUT OF TOUCH WITH THE REAL LIVES OF ORDINARY SCOTS, SAYS GMB
Scotland Scottish economy shrank in the last quarter 2016 and ordinary Scots are suffering
At a recent Scottish Affairs Committee , GMB Scotland predicted the Scottish economy was set to shrink further.
The latest GDP figures confirm the predictions from GMB Scotland and they cannot simply be blamed on Brexit.
The truth is that the Scottish political elite has been indulging itself and has forgotten about the real lives of ordinary Scots.
The new GDP figures must act as awake up call for politicians who are in danger of ‘sleepwalking back to recession’, says GMB Scotland.
The Scottish economy shrank by 0.2% in the last quarter of 2016 – with GDP growing by just 0.4% over the year as a whole.
Will Ritchie tell the GMB it’s all bollocks because those are numbers
entirely made up estimated by Westminster?
