Lots Of Talk But Still No Answers

voltaireToday, the latest breakfast meeting of the Elite Ayrshire Business Circle took place at the Western House Hotel in Ayr.

The guest speaker was Nosheena Mobarik OBE, owner of M Computer Technologies in Glasgow and former chair of the CBI in Scotland who put forward the case for the ‘Better Together’ campaign regarding Scottish independence.

Nosheena was a passionate and eloquent speaker and covered many topics including currency, membership of the EU, financial services, public services etc. but, I’m afraid to report, the upshot was the same as usual.

It doesn’t seem to matter which side of the divide these speakers come from, it all boils down to supposition and scaremongering with no real basis on facts. As far as I understand it, the first tangible piece of information on which to debate the issues will be the SNP white paper on independence due to be published on 26 November.

I, for one, will look forward to it and hope that the majority of my concerns will be answered in that document. Until then, I would like both sides to stop the bickering and negativity and concentrate on providing us with the real facts so we can make an informed decision when the time comes.
