Commenting after the Diageo taskforce led by John Swinney agreed a proposal to put to Diageo to retain production at Port Dundas in Glasgow and to develop a new bottling plant in Kilmarnock SNP MSP for Kilmarnock Willie Coffey who was at tonight's taskforce meeting said;
"We have agreed a proposal to put to Diageo and it is now for them to be true to their word and to negotiate with the Scottish Government and Scottish Enterprise.
"We understand Diageo's need to build their business but you do not do that by abandoning your roots.
"Workers at Johnnie Walker have stood by the plant in good times and in bad. This proposal gives Diageo the opportunity to return that loyalty and stand by workers in both Kilmarnock and Port Dundas."
In the UK as well as the world, we live in interesting times. The global economy is in tatters, there is war all over the place and not content with killing and maiming each other, we're also destroying the environment we live in. In the UK we have a failing government and one could go far enough to say a failing political system. There is a lot going on that makes the blood boil. News Rage is a state of angry mind coupled with the actual venting of that anger which manifests itself in the publication of interesting and hopefully entertaining but highly critical articles about something that has been reported in the news within the last 24 hours.
