The UK is Scotland’s home market. We may live in a country of 5 million people, but our company’s customer base is much larger than that. We can – and do – sell easily to a market of
750 60 million people across the entire Europe UK. We also benefit from the fact that our economy is based on a principle of pooling and sharing risks and resources. When one part of the country needs help, say Buckingham Palace needs a £370m makeover, it gets it. When one part of the country experiences good times, the taxes generated are shared across the entire London.
