Bonnie Scotland – it’s the new Bangalore

Scotland is the next Bangalore, or so we have heard. Downtime has read an article about Scotland’s opportunity to become the next Bangalore by using its skills to become a centre for outsourcing. One expert predicts that Scotland could have an annual gross domestic product of about £82bn if it created a Scottish version of Bangalore. IT directors looking to develop a call centre will now be faced with a difficult decision when planning their new development. Do they spend an unnecessary few weeks “working” in Bangalore in glorious sunshine, perhaps visiting the historic Bangalore Palace, or do they take the high road to Scotland? Deep-fried Mars bar anyone?

    I'm truly disgusted by your flagrant racist and narrow minded view of scotland. Maybe you should get out of your cube more and explore these beautiful BRITISH isles and support our country.
