One in the CBI ...

Good to see that the strained relationship between the SNP Scottish Government and Scotland's premier business organisation, the CBI, shows no signs of improving.

"One of Scotland's leading business figures criticised SNP ministers for wasting their time pushing a "conversation" on independence when they should be growing the economy. Iain McMillan, the director of CBI Scotland, spoke out as Alex Salmond, the First Minister, prepares for tomorrow's launch of the second phase of his National Conversation."

The frostiness started during last year's Scottish Parliament election campaign and shows no signs of improving. The difference of course is that the SNP is now in power, so for how much longer can the CBI continue with a stance which seems to ignore that fact? Even if they don't like it?
