Swinney: iScotland would be 14th wealthiest nation in the world

Scotland would be the 14th wealthiest nation in the world if it was independent, according to new Scottish Government analysis.
Peter A Bell's insight:

Once again we find a British nationalist making an utter fool of himself by rushing to attack the SNP without regard for the facts. As the article makes clear, Scotland's lower ranking is explained by a change in the OECD's methodology. But along comes Gavin Brown babbling about the Scottish Government having lied in the White Paper.

Is there no end to the idiocy of these people that makes them such an embarrassment to Scotland?
