Labour plundering oil revenue as bribe money

Alex Salmond yesterday accused Gordon Brown of using Scotland's oil and gas resources to build up an election "war chest". Over the next five years the Treasury will benefit by 20 billion from North Sea revenues, a third of the money available as "election bribes", according to SNP figures.
