TOP comparing what goes on in other countries to what goes on, or could go on, in Scotland.
I thought it worth leaving the 1st sentence in also.
Unfortunately there is a dimwit in the driving seat insisting the scheme will go ahead even though there is no detail, no infrastructure, no plans as to how this will be dealt with in terms of installing returns machines, or, indeed, how the scheme is going to otherwise work, nothing. She says she has talked to concerned companies about the matter? Has she listened to anything they have said?
Clearly not. All that is left for all sizes of businesses is either to sign up to a project that has no meat on the bones, or else be fined massively for non compliance? W.T.F?
How bloody authoritarian is that? Another legacy of Sturgeon's laughable claim of being a democratic country. It beggars belief.
As for the nonsensical claims of comparison to other "Independent" countries, there is one massive flaw. Scotland is NOT Independent, it exists as part of a Union. All the other parts of that Union are united in addressing the difficulties in building the infrastructure and rather more sensibly are looking at 2025 to implement the scheme.
Not Sturgeon's Scotland, of course. Always, always, has to be different from everyone else, even, as is clear in this case, to the huge detriment of Scottish people.
Thank f**k she's gone.
