Former British PM and leader of the Labor Party Gordon Brown warns Scots that should they vote for the Scottish National party in the coming parliamentary elections, they might end up with an economic collapse similar to that of Iceland and Ireland, visir.is reports.
The party has gained great favor in the polls at the expense of Scottish Labor. Brown, a Scotsman himself, claims that a reelection of Scottish nationalists would lead to a decrease in job availability.
Scottish Nationalists dismiss Brown’s comments as embarrassing. It was Brown who led Britain into the economic crisis, to which he replied that the Scottish regional government under the Scottish Nationalist Party would have wanted to go the same way as Iceland and Ireland. It was the British government that bailed out the banking system and thereby Scottish jobs that otherwise would have been lost.
