    Wiseman losses rumoured to be around 10million first year under Muller ownership.

    Re: Scottish independence

    According to VariablePitch:
    England- 2009 stations
    Scotland-654 stations
    Wales-234 stations
    N.Ireland-186 stations.

    70% of FITS for Scotland seems high for the number of stations.
