    Already know about this from Scots Independent. I think this represents the 10% of North Sea Oil on the Scotland continental shelf that Alec Salmond is offering England.

    Let them have it for now. We can argue in international law later. International law would allow them only to have sea area and continental shelf below a parallel of latitude drawn out east from the common border between England and Scotland. We’ll get it back after independence.

    Dear Craig

    The decision to make more than 6,000 sq miles of Scottish Sea English in 1999. Was passed by Henry McLeish of the Scottish Labour Party. Was the a concession to London to be allowed to have another referendum on devolution. You say Alex Salmond offered this to England? Did he. When SNP ministers have tried to bring the issue up in Westminster several times. There would appear to be some skull duggery behind this undemoratic order. Even the offical order that was on the Scottish Government website has been removed and replaced with a meaningless set of co-ordinates.

    If you have any more information on the matter, we would be grateful if you could post it on http://www.facebook.com/www.oilofscotland.org or send us a private message.

    When SNP ministers have tried to bring the issue up in Westminster several times, and were very outspoken about the issue when people started to realise that it had already been passeed.

    I agree there would appear to be some skull duggery behind this undemoratic order.
