Tory MP, and right wing cheerleader, Bill Cash said yesterday that Scotland can forget about taking the oil with it if it becomes independent as it is in UK waters, end of. What a desperate plank of Tory hate.
The article written by Joe Barnes even has the line “dealt a killer blow ” what is it with all the violent rhetoric in the yoonionist media when it comes to Nicola Sturgeon, has any politician ever had to endure such violent descriptions to their politics. Sorry I digressed, right-winger Cash wants the oil even though it is seemingly in decline, mmmm wonder if recent finds are getting the cobwebs off the rank and file as they get rolled out to spout their crap in the joke that pretends to be press in this country.
Cash’s claim that the oil is in UK waters will be a matter of law but there is already a precedent for this as was explained by Prof Alex Kemp, from the University of Aberdeen in 2013, he said at the time if Scotland were to become independent the “median line” principle would be the “obvious one” to use. This means drawing a dividing line on which all points are the same distance from the Scottish and rest of the UK (RUK) coastline. Prof Kemp says this is the method which was used when the North Sea was originally divided up between the UK and other countries in the 1960s.
Bill Cash MP is a thing of the past and the sooner people like him are out of the political arena the better, they breed division. This Tory MP voted against equal gay rights, against the fox-hunting ban, voted against equal marriage, voted against equality and human rights, voted for the Iraq war and against the investigation, voted for trident, voted against raising social security and for cuts to housing benefit, voted against jobs for young people. As you can see Bill Cash is way past his sell by date and is just a bitter and hateful right-winger so typical of the Conservative Party, must be friends with Ruth Davidson.
I am so sick of these people, they live in the past and it was never glorious in the first place. This country really does have it’s fair share of politicians that would not be out-of-place in the truly horrid parties of old in certain parts of Europe pre EU.
