The tale of the Government's attempt to privatise the Aberdeen war shipyard of Hall-Russell can indeed be appropriately referred to as a "saga". For the management and workforce at this highly successful Scottish yard the whole privatisation episode is turning into a long, involved nightmare. This economic perspective looks at the beginnings of the saga and appraises the future of Hall-Russell.
