I don’t recall anyone saying all jobs would be safe if Scotland had become an independent country. I do recall Better Together telling us that jobs would only be safe if we stayed in the UK.
Vote NO, they said, to protect jobs in the north Sea Oil industry if the price of oil falls, because only the broad shoulders of the UK can protect these jobs.
Vote NO, they said, to save jobs in HMRC offices in Scotland.
Vote No, they said, to protect Scottish Renewables which are subsidised by the generosity of Westminster.
Vote NO, they said, to protect jobs at the Peterhead Carbon Capture Project.
Vote No, they said, to protect jobs in Scotland’s steel factories.
Vote No, they said, to protect jobs in Scottish shipyards.
How many more lies need to be revealed before a majority of Scots wake up to the contempt Westminster holds us in? Before the IndieRef, Wings Over Scotland warned Scotland would be punished if we voted No. Looks like that prediction was correct.
