Of course the SNP where never concerned about North Sea Oil Revenues. Where they ?




SNP's plans in ruin as North Sea oil revenues plummet 94% following slump in price of crude

A rout of global oil prices has continued to batter the North Sea industry with revenues down 94 per cent – smashing a hole in the Scottish National Party’s previous forecasts for an independent Scotland



www.thisismoney.co.uk...



Quoting the Daily Mail = Failure...HA. What's your point. ????? The SNP, The OIL and Gas people and best of all the UK government all got the price of Oil wrong...What really is your point...It makes not one bit of difference who wrongly predicted what. just for the record the UK government got it spectacularly wrong.

Oh and What SNP Plans were in ruins? The SNP's only plan was to save every penny from North sea oil for our furure...

If anyone's Plans are in Ruins it's Osborne's as he planned to spend it. How's that working out for you.? £1.6 trillion in debt and climbing by the second.

You sound very angry. Why?


Did you see that the UK Government has had to give Aberdeen £250 million to maintain the oil port during the oil price collapse? You may have missed that one.

Angry, Yeah i get angry when people blatantly steal the food from the mouth of my children.

As i said, Fact check before you come on here claiming the UK Government is doing this and that..The FACT is the UK Government are only matching (minus 4 million) what the Scottish Government are doing..And considering the wealth that has been STOLEN from Scotland since the discovery of north sea oil then £250 million from Westminster is more of a "well, thanks for nothing" Gesture as far as i'm concerned.

One day the truth will come out on what is stolen from Scotland and how the books are cooked in Westminsters favour..The real facts and figures. It will make shocking reading. Government Expenditure and Revenues Scotland is a fraud. The truth will out.

Yeah,I get Angry, Angry at the lies spewed forth as fact by crazy unionists and the blind stupidity of some people.

Wave goodbye to the North Sea Oil Revenue that the case for Scotland's Independence relied on so heavily.


Makes one wonder if it's worth keeping thee Scottish people in the Union now their contributing factor is gone. Maybe it's time for a referendum on finishing with the Scots in the UK, sort of Czech and Slovak style.

You may have missed this one...


So when the UK Government spends £48bn on a train line from London to Manchester and Leeds, Scotland has to contribute approximately £4,771 million pounds for high speed trains that not only come nowhere near Scotland, but deliver absolutely zero economic benefit to the Scottish economy at all. In essence, the HS2 project sums up the hidden price that the Scottish people pay for remaining part of a broken political system called Westminster and a political-economic model across the UK which requires substantial reform.

More Here..

And this..



SNP MSP Joan McAlpine has asked the Prime Minister to explain why Scotland was cheated out of £400m Barnett Consequentials from the £4.1bn upgrade to the London sewerage network – saying this could fund vital infrastructure projects already snubbed by David Cameron.

More Here.

Makes your paltry £250 million "gift" from Westminster seem a bit of an embarrassment now doesn't it.

oh and by the way, the Welsh and N Irish get the same end of the S##### Stick when it come to who pays what to fund Westminsters English vanity projects.

It does make you wonder. The people have done damned well out of it for sure. Properly civilised them with all that revinue coming in, out with the kilts in with the denim, out with the crofts and in with the semis, out with the haggis and in with the burgers. They've never had it so good

Please do.. You Wonder why they want to keep us..now you have the answer... the fact is Westminster couldn't survive without us. it never could, hence the reason they buried the McCrone report for 30 years.

There probably is something to that. I always thought that keeping the Scots in the Union was more of a military thing. You and your Ulster Scots brothers built the British Empire and have always supplied men out of all proportion to your size for the military. Most English joke about you but deep down we are all Britons and are better together, flying to various places over my life I've come to the conclusion that we've got it pretty good here in the British Isles.

You really need to do a bit of fact checking before you spout this nonsense. No-one from the SNP or pro independence parties EVER claimed Scotland's economy would be reliant on North sea oil...What was said was that Scotland would create a Oil fund modeled on Norway's way of doing things. We have a economy outwith oil that is the envy of most countries in the world.

Gotta love this garbage. Whenever North sea oil is mentioned some trumpet jumps in with.. Scotland bad..Independence bad..as if the fall in Oil prices doesn't effect London...Trust me. It effects Westminster's ability to balance the books more than it does Scotland.

But feel free to try and score political points on the back of thousands losing there jobs...Clown.



That's a little disingenuous, I'm not going to name any names, but a lot of 'yes' voters on ATS couldn't say enough about how Scotland would get to keep all the oil revenue - I'm sure you remember those posts as you were in the threads that discussed this.

And rightly so we would get to keep the Oil revenue that would be generated from Oil production in Scottish waters...do you have a problem with Scotland keeping what's rightfully hers.?

100% of £1 is still £1.. My problem is with Scotland only getting 7p of that £1 as it stands.


I've no problem with that at all, I was pointing the fact out as you seem to be stating that no one had used it as a factor in the benefit of independence.

My main thoughts are for yet more families losing well paid work and ending up on jobseekers allowance, all chasing the few jobs left in their profession's.
I couldn't give one toss if Scotland left the UK, wouldn't be detrimental to my life in any way.

I never said that, I was countering the false statements that come from most unionists and anti SNP that oil revenue it was all we had going for us...How many times do we need to hear the lies that the SNP said that Scotland's wealth would be based on Oil prices..it's a complete fallacy.

It was never said by anyone other than pro-union parties and unionist media. The SNP has never said this and i defy anyone to provide a direct quote from anyone in the SNP that said it. Please provide a direct quote, not a twisted and butchered quote taken from some red top arse wipe. I have been following the SNP for as long as i can remember, I listen intently at every word, every statement i can. I also watch the MSM like a hawk..I know how they twist words to suit their own political agenda.

And funnily enough, i hear the same twisted statements spouted as fact from political opponents both here and in Westminster.

We have a Lib Dem politician here. Alistair Carmichael Orkney and Shetland, lied through his teeth to smear an opponent, Nicola Sturgeon before the last election. 4 of his constituents took him to court. Even though it was proven in a court of law he lied and cost the country a fortune in a public inquiry, he still walks free and is now threatening to financially ruin 4 of his constituents. Not only did he smear a political opponent in doing so he tried to influence the political will of the people, not only here but in England with bare faced lies.. Bags of Rats.

There seems to be some uncertainty about whether it will really be practical.

I know. The ship in the video is a current tender, maintenance platform, right? They show the graphic grabbing onto and cutting away the whole rig to ummm… carry it somewhere, presumably to scrap, since the market is so currently lousy?

These platforms are preformed and towed (with the support structure) out to sea in the first place, they are way to heavy to just cut off and send back on this ummm… maintenance 'barge'.

I'm smelling oily fish on this. I think you're right. They will shut these down in place for now and maybe draw that out as long as possible, promising to 'decommission them' all the while.

They never intended to remove these platforms in the first place, the oil deposits under the rigs are still there, they just never thought oil would drop so much in price and are providing bandaid solutions to make everyone feel good they are doing something.

It will cost even more money and further loss to remove these rigs than just abandon them in place.

Meanwhile, storms, icebergs, rust and decay grow and flow…

All they will do is cap the rigs and keep a skeleton crew for maintenance until the prices go up again. The price of oil could go up to $130 a barrel before the year is out for all we know. It's been lower than this before. No big deal.

Still hundreds of years of Oil and Gas to be extracted from the North sea and West of Shetland...The Clyde basin is also full of the stuff. Another fact that the nawbags appear to have missed. La la la...fingers in ears, not listening. Rool Britanya. Wee arra peepul..
