Professor Richard Murphy has utterly debunked the LSE report suggesting Scotland would be poorer after independence. You can read it here:
I’ve written already to expose the LSE’s willingness to give you what you want, for a price but, today, George Kerevan has drawn our attention to this footnote in the report:
We are grateful to Angus Armstrong, Jim Gallagher and Mairi Spowage for useful discussions about the Scottish economy and Scottish data.
Who is Gallagher?
He’s the main researcher at Gordon Brown’s Our Scottish Future thunk tank and a member of the Scotland in Union Board.
And NO, he’s not a real professor, just an honorary one based on experience as a senior civil servant.
And NO, he doesn’t look like me.
