I was going to mention this post from BellgroveBelle in my previous post 'Take Your Pick' but decided it was too important and required a post of its own.
EnCore has found a significant amount of oil in the North Sea yet, as Belle mentions, there has been nothing about this in the media other than the snippet tucked away on the BBC website and a fleeting report on the late news.
It's impossible to disagree with Belle about an oil fund for Scotland. Surely Scotland could set one up or, at the very least, be able to hold back enough funds to balance our National Grid contributions in alignment with the average in England. Where power is concerned, what is the point of Scotland generating so much yet giving it away for nothing?
