BBCKwasi Kwarteng made a brilliant point about the Scottish economy
Mr Kwarteng commented after Ms Forbes insisted Scotland should be discussing the potential for a second independence referendum.
She said: “We face a choice at the moment between prosperity and growth or continuing to go down this route where we have burgeoning inequality and where we have the slowest economic growth in the developed world.”
As the SNP MSP attempted to finish her point, the Conservative MP for Spelthorne reminded her of a very important point that had her scrambling to respond.
He remarked: “But you are responsible for that, that’s your Government.
“That’s your Government here. That’s your Government here.”
After issuing his brilliant comment, the Question Time crowd erupted into applause as Ms Forbes desperately attempted to rescue her argument.
He responded: “No I said the slowest growth in the developed world and by that, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is the United Kingdom.”
Earlier the MSP for Skye, Lochaber and Badenoch insisted Scotland should be discussing its future and hinted independence is the only way for it to achieve greater economic growth.
