"The reality is North Sea oil and gas will be with us way beyond ," he said in a televised debate. "Every other country in Europe would give its 'eye teeth' to have North Sea oil and gas. The book and the movie are only loosely related, and Oil is much less enticing as a tile than it might have been when it was reality of Scotlands oil book.

That said, the book satisfies a degree of historical interest about the development of the oil extraction business as well as left-wing radicalism in the early 20th century/5().

In the last of a series investigating the key issues around Scottish independence, Terry Macalister looks at how the oil revenues might be divided. For more Reality checks on Author: Terry Macalister.

John Jappy, retired civil servant formerly involved in budget preparation, examines what happened to the billions of pounds of Scottish oil revenue. Read Joh. Oil. The UK government and the UK-based parties try to talk down Scotland’s oil wealth today, just like they talked it down and hid the truth from the moment the oil was discovered in the 70s (see Chapter 1).Labour and Conservative politicians said at that time that the oil would run out by the late s, and they’ve been constantly predicting its end ever since.

Image caption The North Sea oil and gas industry continues to bring in billions in revenue to the UK economy. The rallying cry "It's Scotland's Oil" helped the Scottish National Party to record. Scotland's offshore oil industry can boom for another 30 years if prices hold close to current levels, a major analysis predicts.

In a detailed study of oil price research, it said: "It's the UK government's oil and gas policies and not the oil price alone that have led to Scotland's accounts showing a deficit."

Andrew Tickell: Here's the reality of Scotland's hate crime law. He reported earlier this year, recommending that the statute book should be tidied up into a single coherent piece of legislation. So far, so rational. So uncontroversial. This argument might have some force to it if bore any resemblance to the legal reality.

But it doesn’: Andrew Tickell. Where does Scotland’s wealth go (if it doesn't stay here). It's a simple question but not one often asked, probably as most economics bloggers like myself get bogged down in numbers and over-complicate the issue.

Data from the UK Government’s Office for National Statistics demonstrates in simple terms the distribution of personal wealth in the UK.
