anyway back to the deal ........

There's not much North Sea oil left. Whisky is a huge export, as would electricity be to England...maybe Faslane could be rented.

I think we're better off with the UK, so long as Osborne is sacked or begins to see sense and starts to stimulate the economy. Salmond seems too shifty and devoid of any answers. I'm not willing to take the risk with him steering the ship.

Politics and "hating" aside, this is a great deal!

But we do subsidise you. Public spending per head is about £1,200 a year higher in Scotland than in the UK as a whole (about £11,800 against £10,600 in 2010-11), and is higher across most areas of government activity.

Since when has 'Scotland' had any oil, or any income from it? As far as I know it is all in the North Sea a long way outside of any future Scottish territorial waters assuming they get the standard 12 miles...Even if we allocated a share of it based on your population size, we still subsidise you!

Utter rubbish. Scotland contributes more to the U.K economy than it receives.

We receive an amount, per head, based on an agreed devolution settlement.

Scotland has plenty of oil, and it is indeed Scotland's oil.

But this is about a holiday deal, which I've voted hot on, thanks op.

Totally agree.

We have subsidised the jocks for an eternity. All they do is bang on about the oil. They forget about the billions we've given them over the century's . I can't wait to see the back of them. Put them in the same bracket as the Argentinian's. They're another lot that think because they've found some poxy oil we should all bowe down to they're pathetic demands. If it wasn't for English engineers the oil would not have been found nor excavated.

Let them give back every penny they've ponced off the English over the years and send them on they're merry way.
Give them a couple of years and they'll be grovelling for us to look after them again.

Good deal though.

On second-thoughts, I'm not going to get into this, as most people just want to receive info on this deal. I will end with:

“The evidence is now beyond dispute that Scotland contributes more to the UK Treasury than we receive in return – and that has been the case for 5 years running. The Government and Expenditure Revenue Scotland figures for 2009/10, published last month, show that Scotland contributed 9.4 per cent of UK revenue and received 9.3 per cent of spending – and Scotland’s North Sea revenues are set to double this year to a colossal £13.4bn.

And end up stumbling into this nonsense.
I was always on the fence with regards to independence, but arrogant, misguided patter like this, devoid of any actual fact, makes me think I'd sooner split from any "grouping" that lumps me in with the likes of you, Supersid.
Scotland is oil rich, mineral rich, has plenty of water and electricity supplies and has a population density 7 times less than that of England. In short, we are self-sufficient.
Enjoy your "wealth" as you spend another summer with a hosepipe ban and have to share a bath with your maw again

You know, when I clicked on this link to see a deal about a flight to Barbados I thought to myself:

"I would absolutely LOVE IT if there was a cheeky little mention about Scottish subsidisation and Oil exports in the comments."

But they are not 'Scotland's' North Sea Revenues. They are the UK's North Sea revenue - for which Scotland contributes very little other than some logistics facilities in Aberdeen....99% of the oil exploration and extraction is funded by London or International stock market listed companies that are not based in Scotland.

If you think that in leaving the UK, Scotland is going to suddenly own all of the North Sea revenue then you are simply dreaming. At best you might get given a share.

Even if you did get given a geographical share rather than a proportional or no share, then you would still be worse off than the rest of the UK after independence: heraldscotland.com/pol…297

Edited by: "richto" 15th Mar 2013

Lets get the facts straight here;

The majority of international companies who you refer to; the ones actually extracting the oil and who are subject to the taxes of the oil they take out of the ground, have European headquarters based in Aberdeen, and therefore assuming this remained the same if and when an independent Scotand came into force, would be subject to the taxes from their main office on all oil revenue.
There are of course a couple of anomolies where one or two do have HQ's based in London and England would of course pick up the taxes from these companies.
There are several ONSHORE facilities also, which extract oil.
At present, England may also do well out of it, because a large number of refineries are based in England, as opposed to Scotland.

Please at least know what you're talking about instead of quoting what some hack has written in a newspaper article.
Next you'll be quoting the Daily Star and it's "Giant Hot Dog Eclipses The Sun" headline as a matter of fact ffs...

Aww, "Super" Sid...
I'm guessing it was "your maw" who has called you super, and you believed her?

Let's look at your "facts" and see who's the "brainwashed cretin";

"We have subsidised the jocks for an eternity."
- From the level of your chat, I suspect you've contributed very little to society, much less contributed some cold, hard cash that has ended up in my or any other Scottish persons pocket, but it's nice to dream.
I'm assuming you mean the "Royal We" rather than anything you, yourself have done, and I'd love to see some good facts to back up this statement.

"They forget about the billions we've given them over the centuries"
- Why would England WANT Scotland to be part of the Treaty of Nations, if we were indeed, as you state, costing them billions?
The simple fact is, we pay the same rate in taxes as you, get paid less for the same jobs (in comparison to London) and STILL come out of it with a lower NET Spend. Again, I'd love to see some "facts" of yours, other than thumping your knuckles on the keyboard and managing to string a sentence together every now and again.

"Put them in the same bracket as the Argentinian's. They're another lot that think because they've found some poxy oil we should all bowe down to they're pathetic demands"
- I'm not even going to bother getting into the whole Falklands thing, but where have Scotland made "ANY" demands, much less some pathetic ones?
I stated the fact that if Scotland went independent, than as things are, the European Headquarters BASED IN SCOTLAND for dozens of multinational oil companies would be subject to tax. There's nothing to "fall for" or "be brainwashed over". Sorry, but this is just a simple fact.

"Let them give back every penny they've ponced off the English over the years and send them on they're merry way. "
- Likewise, lets claw back every penny of oil revenue and claim back some backdated taxes on the minerals and water and electricity you continue to use every single day?

"Give them a couple of years and they'll be grovelling for us to look after them again."
- ANYONE who grovels at your feet would be in desparate times. And anyone who needs you to look after them would be taken out by natural selection.

LOL @ "European headquarters based in Aberdeen" - translated to English, this means a local branch office. Not a true Head Quarters. I suspect you will find they all also have offices in London. There are only 5 commodities companies I know of with real HQs in Scotland and they are all quite small.

You clearly don't understand how taxes work. Having a branch office in Scotland has little to do with it. It is which government controls the source and can tax based on the extraction rather than the profit that matters. If Scotland tried to tax companies that recognise commodities revenue in Scotland from English fields then those companies would simply recognise the revenue in London or elsewhere instead. Or just move.

I'm not aware of any onshore oil wells in Scotland - do please enlighten me as to where they might be? And even if they do exist then I suspect the revenue is negligible.

Refineries are also irrelevant to the tax question - oil and gas can be shipped pretty much anywhere.

Maw simply means "mother".

@richto: Aye because the English have done such a fantastic job of managing the economy? Ffs, think before you speak at least..oO
Also, there are at least 140 oil-related companies with HEADQUARTERS based in Aberdeen (i.e. the COMPANY is registered with HMRC with an address in Aberdeen and reports accounts from and pays taxes from this address).
Of course they can change this to whatever they want, but if there was no incentive to, why would they?

And most likely, Scotland would make much more sensible use of tax breaks in order to stimulate growth, business and new enterprise.
