Whose oil?

Have your say

Jack Ponton’s letter (23 August) clearly indicates, as most now know, that Scotland is not the uniform country that Mr Salmond and other members of the SNP always assumed it was.

If Orkney and Shetland vote No against a majority Yes vote elsewhere, they could well consider their own independence. By the same self-centered and divisive claim, constantly reiterated by Mr Salmond that it’s Scotland’s oil, would it then instead become Orkney and Shetland’s oil?
