SNP question London over boundary theft

The SNP are questioning the honesty and long term validity of Londons stealing of Oil/gas rich sea from the Scots JUST prior to the vote on May 6th this year.

Gordon Wilson, ex SNP party leader said "Why was the boundary changed, on what basis, who decided to change it and when, and who if anyone was consulted?"

He added the whole affair had been "smuggled through by a backdoor method at Westminster" and that "There has been sharp practice by Westminster, but it is more fundamental than that. This is an attack on the territorial integrity of Scotland".
