Quotes

"Anything short of detailed answers from the nationalists on these crucial concerns about their plans can only spell bad news for employees and businesses."
"Islanders will be wary of centralising nationalists bearing gifts. Given that the SNP's power promises are conditional on a vote for their independence plans, Nicola Sturgeon's whistle stop tour from Edinburgh is a gun to the head - vote for us or else you get nothing. Islanders are not taken in and that is why Shetland will vote No Thanks in three weeks time."
"They are crystal clear – the business case for independence has not been made and Scotland is thriving as part of the UK. This powerful intervention comes after the SNP’s currency fiasco, fantasy oil revenues and extraordinary threat that an independent Scotland wouldn't pay its share of the UK's debts. There simply isn't one credible economic argument for independence. The Scottish economy is growing and creating jobs as part of the UK - Scottish business is right that we shouldn't put that at risk."
"I think that it is right that those profiting from these extra sales should give something back. I nominate the major supermarket chains to get involved and back this campaign."
