Nicola Sturgeon MSP has welcomed the “eventual” signing by the Ministry of Defence of a contract with BAE Systems for two aircraft carriers. Fans of irony may enjoy this comment from her:
“It is unfortunate that the shipyards and the workforce have faced significant delay from the Ministry of Defence in signing the contract leading to some uncertainty at the yards but this is a good day for shipbuilding on the Clyde and in Rosyth.”
“Significant delay”? Seriously? How much of a “delay” would there be, Nicola, if you and your pals had succeeded in your wee plans for Scotland to secede from the rest of the country? How confident are you that an English government would spend billions of pounds securing Scottish shipyard jobs?
Nationalist dishonesty has always been entertaining to behold, but this level of cynicism is breathtaking.
