After reading the above article and then seeing the plans for fracking in Scotland on http://frackoffscotland.org.uk/     for the very first time, I regret not having a vote in the referendum. If I did.....it would likely be 'Yes'!
Well you're preaching to the converted here!  I've never been in favour of fracking anywhere ever since I found out what it was all about.

Will there be no fracking in iScotland? Maybe if everybody votes Green?

Why is it shocking? The reasons given are sound, even if you disagree with them: the strategic security of the UK nuclear deterrent.

It wasn't as if Thatcher was rubbing her hands together plotting how to screw the downtrodden Scots.

And, ironically, delaying the exploitation of oil in the Clyde arguably ended up benefiting Scotland as, when extraction did start to occur, prices were higher.
I don't disagree with everything that Heseltine says, but find the secretive manner in which all this was done reprehensible.

Right, this is absolutely mental.

This morning, I'm reading the Mail Online. I see a story about parking 'fines' in hospitals. I scroll down and see a picture of a woman called Jenny Harris from Portishead.

I think, 'Hmm, she looks a bit like my wife'.

I email Sarah.

She writes back, 'That IS me'.

Ha-ha. She's playing along with the joke.

I write back: 'Yeah, you in a stupid wig.'

She replies, 'No, that REALLY IS ME. I'm shaking.'

I start to take her seriously now. Yes, it clearly is.

We make enquiries. Someone has sent her picture in to the paper, for some reason, and they've randomly used it next to a story about a heart-attack victim called Jenny Harris (a story they've obviously completely made up).

I took that picture. It's my copyright and they can't just stick a picture of my wife in the press cos they feel like it.

We're going to ask for £1000 to go away.

If you have a print copy of the Mail, it's on page 7. They removed it from Mail Online.

Maybe they saw your rants at Harman and wanted to get revenge on you.

Thanks Caz.  Pretty shocking, I agree,

Yes it's okay to do fracking in Scotland but those down south want it nowhere near them god save them if it happens.

The map below shows the availability of fracking exploration licenses as of the 28th of this month. Red and yellow are license blocks, green is unlicensed. You'll note that most license blocks are actually in England... which makes total sense when you realise that most of the fertile shale deposits are located here. You'll also note that it includes a significant portion of London, and ALL of south central and south eastern England.

We have know for years that the oil reserve figures have been untrue with the British Government lowering the amount of oil still in the North Sea.

Nonsense. You don't even need to read reserve figures (which largely come from industry estimates, and are therefore padded towards the optimistic side of things). Instead the production chart tells it all:

[ Attachment: You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Oil is a finite resource. The oil still in the North Sea is general of lower quality and harder to extract, which means the EROI is lower and the profit margin slimmer. See http://www.economist.com/news/britain/21597890-scottish-nationalists-are-right-charge-britain-has-mismanaged-north-sea-oil-unionists for a nice rundown of it. Yes, there has been some mismanagement, but ultimately I wouldn't want to bet on oil providing much revenue long into the future.

Thanks Aileen! There's another article on here that people may find of interest! It's 'Tories Blocked Oil Boom In The Clyde....Heseltine Admits'!  shocking  I found both article and comments interesting, but if you want to read it.....better do it soon before it disappears! It's 2 on the list on the right hand side!
Thanks Caz.  Pretty shocking, I agree, but why am I shocked at anything Thatcher and her government did?  I've no doubt that had the referendum taken place when she was PM, we'd have been queueing up to vote Yes - and that's without the knowledge of this particular ploy.  Scotland doesn't need nuclear subs but it does need to build up its oil reserves, something which is necessary anyway regardless of which way the vote goes.

What Prof Dunleavy says is very interesting and brings up a few points I'm sure a lot of people never even thought about, whichever camp they're in.  Also it confirms my belief that the 18 months' transition time-scale is completely nonviable, especially as we're faced with the ludicrous situation of having a General Election next year and all the implications that this is going have for Scottish voters if the outcome of the referendum is Yes.

DR Who could fix the mess.

If only he was real. A man that can fix every crisis the world has ever seen. Makes you wonder really what the world will be like if he was really around. I'm not saying he has to be alien, but someone with enough intelligence, gravitas and ability to reason with others that he could stop wars, crime, death etc.
