On reading an interesting blog called ‘Niko’s Bar’ I discovered the following story and investigated it. Fergus Ewing the dismal snp MSP and Scottish Energy Minister and, more significantly, member of the snp’s own Royal Family The Ewings has apparently and belatedly discovered that the price of oil “now involves the most serious job situation Scotland has faced in living memory” (Fergus Ewing).
Former labour MP Brian Wilson writes “Can this be the same Fergus Ewing with whom I took part in an energy debate in Aberdeen before the referendum when he insisted that planning Scotland’s economic future on the basis of oil at $113 was not only prudent but – as the White Paper said – “cautious”?. It would appear that Prince Andrew is not the only over promoted Royal beneficiary of blatant nepotism. Queen Winnie Ewing, King Stewart, Prince Fergus, Princess Margaret and Princess Annabelle have all at one time or another been employed and paid for by the public as snp representatives. Not only representatives but cabinet positions must be found for them as well if Queen Winnie demands it.
When considering Fergus Ewing’s damascene conversion to the truth about oil as acknowledged by the rest of the world Mr. Wilson recalls a public meeting where he and Fergus Ewing argued about oil in of all places, Aberdeen and writes “I looked back in the light of Mr Ewing’s apocalyptic change of tune to the immediate aftermath of that encounter”. “As you might expect in Aberdeen,” I wrote, “it was a knowledgeable audience and an authoritative voice from the floor told him that the entire oil industry is working on a forward curve of $90 a barrel. ‘Your numbers are not taken seriously. Your numbers are simply wrong.’ Nobody demurred.”
Only one conclusion can be drawn from this snp oil fiasco, either they are guilty of telling a big big lie as Hitler famously advised or they are grossly incompetent and unfit for office. The whole of Scotland dodged a bullet when it voted NO, remember that when these people ask you to vote for them again.
