London lackie John Reid hides truth over Scotland sea sell off
Just before the Scots voted in favour of a devolved parliament, London
arranged to steal 6000 square miles of Scotlands internationally recognised
ocean with the help of the London sponsored Scottish Office.
Richard Lochhead, a Scottish member of Parliament (MSP) has requested access to all
papers relating to this theft of Scotlands property and John Reid, Scottish
secretary and labour London lackie has said no.
Dr John Reid said it "would not be in the public interest" for him to be
given access to the correspondence between the former Scottish
Office and Whitehall in the run-up to the decision.
"So much for freedom of information. This is a scandalous decision that confirms suspicions
throughout Scotland that London pulled out the stops to rob
Scotland, and New Labour allowed Whitehall to siphon off 6000
square miles of Scottish seas in the run-up to devolution and treat
our fishermen with contempt."
Reid's reply read "I have given very careful consideration
to your request to have access to the Government papers relating to
the establishment of this fishing boundary. The papers concerned
consist of communications between departments and internal
public interest. I am sorry not to be more helpful."
The control over Scottish waters is also a devolved matter so are any documents
pertaining to these waters, nothing like covering up theft is there?
This is the same behaviour as all Londons loud mouths who say Scotland isn't
viable economically as an independent country - PROVE IT OR SHUT THE HELL UP!!!
