First Minister Welcomes Support of "Job Creator"

>> 7 September 2012

Welcoming the comments of Clyde Bowers Chief Executive Jim McColl in today’s Scotsman in which he offers his support for Scotland becoming independent First Minister Alex Salmond said:

“Jim McColl is one of Scotland’s most successful business figures and job creators, and his opinions are widely respected across the country.

“This is a hugely significant intervention in the debate on Scotland’s future and I welcome his comments, which will only help to persuade more people of the need for an independent Scotland with the economic tools we need to create jobs and prosperity.

“The contrast between the job creators like Jim McColl and the job destroying policies of George Osborne and his Tory colleagues could not be clearer.  The job creator is in support of an independent Scotland, the job destroyer is against it.

“Scotland needs no lessons from a Tory Chancellor whose failed economic strategy is thwarting recovery, jeopardising jobs and threatening livelihoods and family budgets across the country. And the more the Tories and the rest of the anti-independence parties continue to offer nothing to Scotland, the more people will be persuaded to vote Yes to independence.”
