Who actually owns the North Sea ?

Most of the area where the big bucks were being (and still are) made are in Scottish waters, though I do remember reading somewhere where Tony Blairs government had somewhat surreptitiously moved the English rights further North ... Would need to look that up though ..

Yep, found it ....

His defence was that he was cad and a bounder, who behaved badly towards women under his "command", but it wasn't criminal. ;D

His testimony in the most serious charge of assault with intent to rape,  that "he pinned her on a bed and forced his hands up her skirt"
Salmond answered in court that he and the woman had fallen onto the bed in a “sleepy cuddle” after drinking a potent Chinese spirit while they worked.  That charge was not proven. His account of the encounter is corny beyond belief but it happens to support his defence that he was cad and a bounder, who behaved badly to women under his "command".

What the High Court witnessed was the culmination of a bitter internal war that had riven the SNP since it lost the independence referendum in 2014; a war between supporters of the present First Minister and those of Mr Salmond.
Battered and bruised by that 2014 loss, policy and personal differences in the SNP's higher ranks intensified to such an extent that for much of the last three years Scotland's governing party had become not one but two entities: one supporting Ms Sturgeon and the other backing Mr Salmond.
