McCrone Report Published in The National

Recommended Posts

The McCrone Report has been suppressed by a series of UK governments in power. Published today in The National https://www.thenational.scot/news/17461406.this-is-what-westminster-doesnt-want-you-to-read-the-mccrone-report-in-full/?ref=mr&lp=1

"The country [Scotland] would tend to be in chronic surplus to a quite embarrassing degree and its currency would become the hardest in Europe, with the exception perhaps of the Norwegian kroner. Just as deposed monarchs and African leaders have in the past used the Swiss franc as a haven of security, so now would the Scottish pound be seen as a good hedge against inflation and devaluation and the Scottish banks could expect to find themselves inundated with a speculative inflow of foreign funds."

At the time in 1975:
"If, in five years’ time North Sea oil is contributing massively to the UK budget, while the economic and social condition of West Central Scotland continues in the poor state that it is today, it would be hard to imagine conditions more favourable to the growth of support for the nationalist movement."

If the information contained in #McCroneReport was widely circulated the impetus for Scottish Independence decades after this report produced would surely escalate.

The UK state has been lying to Scotland and stealing its resources for almost 50 years.

literally £ billions and billions of pounds that Scotland could have used to modernise and create a better society was stolen to create the 'city' and to buy the rich with unnecessary tax cuts

Haven't even done much of a job anywhere when you look at Norway and their huge oil fund.

According to Oil and Gas News the Oil Industry is booming including subsidiary projects. '

A total of £5 million has been pledged for a project to boost the capacity of a Scottish harbour to receive cruise ships and vessels working in the offshore oil and gas industry.'

It's a good idea to check out Oil and Gas News as we don't get positive news about the oil industry on MSM or Telly News that often.
