Bridge To Nowhere.

What a jolly political wheeze from the Confederation of British Industry In Scotland (The CBI) to use the confusion over the financing of the new Forth Road Bridge to attempt to resurrect it's call for the privatisation of Scottish Water.

"SCOTTISH Water should be sold off to pay for the new Forth road bridge, one of Scotland's most prominent business leaders will claim today."

Perhaps it is just Mr Smith, but when any government has to flog off its assets to pay for major infrastructure projects then they are probably already on the slippery slopes that no government wants to be on. And shame on the CBI for putting it's perspective ahead of that of the country as a whole.
