It’s disappointing that despite many thousands of job losses announced by companies in the city over the last few months, the closure of BT offices still does not seem to have shaken the officers and councillors at Aberdeen City Council into some sort of serious action to try to attract blue chip companies into the city.
In my opinion all we have is student flats by the thousands but not one company into the city bringing high-quality jobs to replace the ones being lost at BT.
All we seem to get is platitudes about being the hydrogen capital of Europe – in my opinion all hot air whilst we fall further behind Dundee and Inverness.

Policy is a mistake

Compare the figures and ask yourself why.
