Is that still an argument FOR independence?

In time for the SNP’s conference today, this drew me out of my temporary hiatus. It’s still up on the SNP website under ‘success’:

“Off our west coast lies Ireland, the fourth most prosperous country in the world. Off our north coast lies Iceland, the sixth most prosperous country in the world.”

“These independent countries represent an arc of prosperity – and Scotland has every bit as much potential as any of them.”

Um, perhaps that could do with updating …
