British voters poll to keep stealing Scotlands oil and gas

A poll of 'UK' (whatever that means) voters showed that most of them wanted to continue the theft of oil and gas worth almost 4 billion pounds a year ($7billion) and give that money to the exchequer in London.

48% - say petroleum tax raised from Scottish territorial waters should continue to go the Treasury in London. Only 36% believe that the money should be controlled by Edinburgh.

This is sickening. It shows the Scottish devolved parliament is nothing but a glorified parish council that survives on handouts from London even though it (Scotland) is a rich country.

And IDIOT Labour voters in Scotland want to stay poor. How incredibly dumb and cowardly of them.
