Yesterday, the UK government approved a £100 million bailout + a £106 million deferral of APD.

Who owns Connect Airways? A consortium led by Virgin Atlantic. Richard Branson helping himself to taxpayer monies again...😡

@davidgrierson But the budgets need to be set by law on the very day the Tories give the UK budget. This is a deliberate punch in the mouth!

Everyone's quite rightly doing their duster over the timing of UK budget announcement.
If ever there was a sign that Holyrood's days are numbered then this is a gigantic flashing arrow.
Powers grabbed and toodle-pip.

I heard tales of yore when cinema ushers would shine a torch in noisy faces to wheesh them.
Nowadays theatre ushers light up folks recording the show on their phones.
Everything changes as it stays the same.
