Those were the words yesterday of Mark J. Thomas, North Sea regional president for the oil giant BP. Last week BP posted profits of $144 million after a loss of $1.4 billion in the previous year. When a BP exec says that kind of thing, you know the real situation is probably even more optimistic. Obviously, he wouldn’t want politicians thinking they could starting taxing them a bit. See these:
Oil companies making more at $50 per barrel than they did at £100 per barrel yet the UK Government is not taxing them. Is this a ploy to undermine the case for Scottish independence or just interlocking elite corruption?
Apologies if this is getting repetitive but we need to keep reminding Unionists that the North Sea has a longer term future of profitability for a hopefully independent Scotland.
