For a man with a very Scottish name Kelvin MacKensie really has made a fool of himself this side of the border.
Obviously as a former sun editor, sense and dignity do not figure highly as personal characteristics, as opposed to narcissistic self-aggrandisement. How can someone on such a high profile show as Question Time come out with such generalised comments, that, as an English man working in Scotland, I find insulting to the extreme. Has he forgotten all the oil wealth that has left this Scotland to fund the South East?Where would English football be without the influence of Scots: Ferguson, Shankly, Paisley to name but a few. What about all those Scots in Westminster, you can't say they have lacked drive? Gordon Ramsay...not entrepreneurial?
He has obviously not visited a school in Scotland recently and seen the extraordinary work going on to encourage the development of enterprise skills (including social enterprise), which can only bear fruit in the future.
I for one am proud to work in a country which has one of the best education systems in the world and has some of the most forward thinking educationalists in europe.
Sorry Kelvin, you are wrong and extremely ill-informed. Not something you should expect of a former editor of a national newspaper...but then again when we remember your editorials post- Hillsborough...'nuff said.
