Iain Macwhirter of The Herald has certainly been causing a stir with comments which he claims were intended to provoke a reaction with bloggers. Call me cynical, but I'm not so sure.
Perhaps I'm alone in this, but I really don't think the statement "financial services sector which is being downsized faster than the twin towers......"
is particularly appropriate.
Obviously there is no need to rehearse the events 9/11, which perhaps makes the analogy even more offensive.
