As Scotland is part of the UK, then the UK can't squander Scotlands oil now can it? It can only squander the UK's oil.
Not sure that that's necessarily true QM. The EU has often been blamed for squandering the UK's money. It's oil in waters which international courts have deemed to be Scottish, ie adhering to Scots law. It is therefore Scottish oil.Now I think that the government wastes my money fighting American wars and having Kings and Princes and Ambassadors with Rolls Royces all over the place, and having a House of Lords that is getting on for 1000 strong when other countries manage with far fewer people and run teh place better...It’s my money, but the London government is wasting it. Just like it’s our oil and the London government is wasting it.But hey, I’m just an ignorant jock, it’s the opinion of a Nobel winning economist that might count. :)
Maybe QM can explain why the UK government under TB changed the seabed lines out of Berwick back in 1999!Its here as well tris http://newsnetscotland.com/economy/728-ireland-economy-defended-after-attack-by-labours-iain-gray
I can explain that CH. Simple. He wanted our oil for England to shut us stupid Jocks going on about it being OUR oil. He wanted it as HIS oil.I wish I had a large pot of it that I could boil Blair the lying warmongering backside licking toad in.
Thanks for that link CH. It's an excellent article. Iain Gray really should try to ask questions that he knows something about. Like: "How many fingers am I holding up?"
