Kevin McKenna: This could be the first step to an independent Scotland

riverside museum

IF the cause of independence is soon to prevail then its adherents will come to regard the month of May, 2018, as having been one of its high watermarks. In the coming weeks the contents of Andrew Wilson’s long-awaited Growth Commission, published yesterday, will be subject to intense scrutiny and an onslaught of foam-flecked invective from the massed ranks of the Unionist media. Much of this will have been pre-packaged and will feature the words “…but what about the £9bn fiscal deficit” this being the sacred incantation that eventually binds all pro-Union supplicants in adoration. That even the most obsessive of these has been forced to admit that the legendary public spending deficit represents a mere snapshot of a situation using incomplete data and failing to acknowledge the different spending priorities of the government of a future independent Scotland is rarely allowed to spoil the narrative. .
