Scottish independence: Aggreko warns of risks

Scottish independence: Aggreko warns of risks | Referendum 2014 | Scoop.it
THE world’s largest temporary power generation company Glasgow-based Aggreko has become the latest company to warn of the risks of Scottish independence.
Peter A Bell's insight:

Read this without the British nationalist filter and it seems that Aggreko's concerns are not with independence or the Scottish Government's proposals but with the British parties' threat to abolish the currency union.

Should Scotland forego its rightful constitutional status simply to avoid inconveniencing a few business people? Can the commercial interests of Aggreko or any other company possibly outweigh the democratic, social and economic arguments for independence?

Whose country is this?

Rupert Soames seems to doubt his own ability to manage his company in a changing political environment. Perhaps Aggreko should be looking for someone who is less daunted by the challenges of running a business in a democracy.
