Enjoyed that, thanks for the link and good job FP. I thought Kelvin was also superb and at one point I thought the Red Barron-ess was going to give you a glasgow kiss.

Unless for some reason you particularly want to watch Jockanese politicians talking shite, I suggest that you fastforward the iPlayer recording to approx 17.35/32.35 to get to the interesting stuff.

That was brilliant FP, well done and thanks again. Baroness Ford seems to be completely unknowledgeable and capable only of handwringing. Her position at RBC can only be down to her 'contacts' and 'access' in my view.

Nice getting a hat-tip from Kelvin Mackenzie about the crash.

you'll learn 'em..

EDIT: I liked the explosion of the Scottish housing market myth.

The knimbies who say "No" demand..... a sacrifice!
Arthur: Knimbies of No, we are but simple hardworking families who seek affordable housing on the scrubland beyond these woods.
Knimbies of No: No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No! No!
Bedevere: Please stop opposing our reasonable demands!
Knimby of No: We shall say "No" to you... if you do not appease us.
Arthur: Well what is it you want?
Knimby of No: We will allow you to build your precious high density shoeboxes, so long as you do not move so much as....

(pregnant pause)

A SHRUBBERY!!!!

Wow, nice to see FP smiling - strange, but I don't think I've ever seen that before. You've got every reason to have a grin on your face now, you called it right. ;)

Last nights Newsnight Scotland might also be of interest to readers of this site, the topic for discussion was "how did economists fail to predict the downturn".
