    I would have loved to have seen the coppers face ax he took that complaint. An international war crime, it would have been even better if it was officer Karen behind the counter. :laugh:

    Yes it struck me as the old movie publicity stunt. Twinned with social meeja entitlement bods.

    The wife (who used to manage a Cine World) tells me the policy is only to buy the biggest films when they're first released. They pick up the lesser films when they're on their second round, just before they go to Netflix. This low budget release might be picked up by them later.

    And the billions in lost revenue from oil and gas. Add to that the electricity that’s exported for free, almost, down south and the revenue from the tourist and food/drink industries.

    Someone has to pay for England’s nervous breakdown (brexit).

    How much of our biggest industries cash raised actually stays in our country.

    Oil and gas is a global market with lots of different fingers in the pie, and whilst I'm very proud of hydro and wind, it wouldn't be possible without lots of foreign investment, salmon farming alone is worth over a billion alone but again not a lot of sites exist that are not owned by Norwegians or somesuch.

    I reckon it's been a reasonably successful 20 years but there is still work to do.

    Obviously, there are a few no longer with us but seeing the late great Donald Dewar does remind me of the class of politician that rarely exists anymore.

    Margo Macdonald being another.

    There's only a lot of fingers in the pie because Westminster sold us out. We could have went the Norwegian way and created our own equivalent of Statoil but no, everything sold off to their millionaire mates.

    Scotland Statoil would have been amazing, but as you say, we've already been sold out and that won't change. Ofcourse, it's not all bleak. We still have an oil industry and will have for some considerable time despite what some would have you believe. There is much more to Scotland than that though. :thumbsup:

    Absolutely! I know this. It's not our oil England is frightened of losing but our electricity and - even more critically - access to our water. And our waters.

    Do you mean an independent Scotland might not longer be able to pass water? ....
     
  13. No, it's more that Scotland will be able to pass its own water... Honestly, keep up at the back.

    I was thinking of the tax revenues that Westminster have been peeing up against walls for the past 45 years.
