I hope he's not referring to that rather silly "they stole OUR oil" line of thinking.

Andy will play his first doubles not before 4.30pm Munich time tomorrow. No idea if it will be televised.

Andy's second round opponent will be the winner of Struff vs Zvarev the Elder (Mischa), who are second on court 2 tomorrow around 12.30/1pm Munich time tomorrow.

It's interesting for me as a neutral....I really do get your pride in the Scottish nation, your anger with the Labour Party and  your  annoyance that London sucks out the life blood from the rest of the country. As a Welsh person I feel all that, but I really do not get this head in the sand  attitude  as to where the money's going to come from.
Of course, before anyone jumps on me. I'll add that a substantial amount of the wealth that London generates is distributed, through taxation, to the regions.
  I'll jump on you for accepting that London is returning a fraction of the blood it has sucked to begin with!

Indeed. The size of the deficit is staggering... and yet there are no serious proposals on how it should be addressed. The closest Sturgeon has got is to waffle about growing out of the hole, but without any actual details.
  And Osborne is different how?

Better make sure the oil price has gone up before then! Or perhaps Scotland has alternative revenue in mind for funding its ambitious welfare program?
  Unlike some, I don't see the fluctuation in oil prices as the be-all and end-all of a successful  Scottish economy. I realise that there are many who are fixated on that, but the value of independence is far more fundamental than the price of a barrel of oil.

The other thing few are talking about is a workable majority. You tend to need a majority of 20 or so to have decent prospects of a stable government. Major got that in 1992, but even he saw that swindle to nothing after deaths and by-elections. Indeed he was relying on the unionists by the end.

That's a good point. It's going to be difficult, if not impossible, for any combination of parties to get a worldly majority.
