    Pretty damning. SNP spending plans were set at scenario 3 if I rememeber correctly.

    Remember we already have a bigger deficit than the UK. Bridging that gap just to the predicted oil income would be like the UK govt borrowing and extra 70bn ON TOP of our current borrowing every year.

    Game set and match. Monumental bullet dodged.

    The only truth in politics is people will vote based on the strength of the economy. Crumbling communications infrastructures undermine the economy. Failing to maintain/safeguard the economy means the beginning of the end for the SNP. ( Oil is a bonus....yeah ? cheap oil / fuel a bonus for drivers )

    Pomp, bombast, and vacuous hubristic proclamations have no economic substance or significance.

    The state of the economy will reveal all.

    Well done an excellent article that illustrates the volatile geo politics of oil brilliantly and which effects the entire world, just shows how non nonsensical Salmon et all's oil fiscal predictions were in indy refer 2014......of course the article wasn't on wingsoverscotland which make it unbelievable....and according to some "oil is a bonus"..shows you how myopic and economically illiterate they are eh ?
