There has been some backlash to this article and to be fair I think it is reasonable. The issue is the lack of context. As Westminister does not allow Scotland to borrow money in the normal manner it is done in this way. In addition the Scottish Futures Trust is far superior to what it replaces, the Private Finance Initiative.
So its sort of like chopping down a tree, we need a chainsaw but we are not allowed to use it because chainsaws are banned in our country. So instead we are using an axe when we were previously using a toothpick. All in all, you should be happy with the guy that gave you the axe!
The moral of the story is, if you want to borrow money like a normal country, Scotland must become independent. As such it is hypocritical for a unionist party to complain about such things, especially Labour, who introduced PFI and voted against more powers for Scotland during the Smith commission.
The bare faced cheek!
