LABOUR TELL SNP 'SCOTLAND IS A NATION'
Scottish Labour is calling on the SNP to accept that Scotland is a nation. Alex Neil said in a press release that he will be presenting his case against the HBOS merger to a 'national audience' on Channel 4. Does he think that when he appears on Scottish programmes he is only addressing a region?
Scottish Labour Finance Spokesman David Whitton said:
"Alex Neil seems to think that Scotland is only a region.
"He says his appearance on Channel 4 is before a 'national audience'. Well, I believe I am speaking to a 'national audience' when I appear on programmes in Scotland.
"Alex Neil should accept that Scotland is a nation and apologise for his patronising slur."
