Kiss of Death

Ireland and Iceland were doomed the moment they were named as the offshore European Tiger economies Scotland should emulate. It appears Spain was also given the kiss of death when we were encouraged to join them on the leading edge of the EU’s conversion to renewables. Following their example, the Scottish Government promised to deliver 16,000 green energy jobs over the next decade. The problem was that these green Spanish jobs were dependent on Government subsidies and had resulted in the loss of an equal number of jobs in other sectors. With their economy in crisis, Government green job creation has collapsed, and youth unemployment has risen from 20% to 45%. All hope will finally be lost if the Prime Minister puts his seal of approval on these plans for a renewable utopia in Scotland.
