Interest post by Simon,

The person is in fight or flight mode. Obviously personally threatened by the recent democratic changes. The use of the ” you don’t” and “you don’t” indicates a person very much being pushed into a very uncomfortable position, with real concern over the future.

    so many armchair generals,

    excellent article newsroom. I do this for a career so i understand the delicate balance between investment and extraction and also the geopolitical influences which determine where and when substatial captial is invested.

    i lived in norway for 2 years, my 2 eldest chikdren speak norwegian, jeg snakker lit norsk. norway is no utopia. let me tell you the hard truth it is an exceptionally expensive contry to live in. in the uk we have a culture which is substatianlly different to that of the scandanvian countries.

    putting the alcohol prcing thing to one side ( which is incidentially down to doctors prescribing alchol as an antidespresan in the 1920 and 1930 in the region )

    norway has maintained its sovereign welath fund through taxation. i was taxed at 47.5% of my earnings. So where i worked 60-80 hours per week for some months at a time. 30-40 hours if that went to pay my tax bill. and before sime one says that its not possible to work that many hours in norway as the trade unions wouldnt allow it. as a manger you are not covered by such legislation.

    the cukture of the scandanvian countries is significantly differen to that of the uk. there is an excellent blog call My little Norway, which others have visited here, which gives an insight. norwegians are proudly insular and independant but dont expect any banter at the train station annaspect of scottish life which i love.

    in short i lovd working in norway ( as ourmaninoslo ) but i would nt wish to spend the rest if my life there. if the brave new world view is that scotland shoukd be become a new norway then i’ll not be coming back.

    Unfortunately it’s not greed it about choice.

    I choose to ride my bike to work every day rather than drive.
    My boss chooses to drive an electric car. And my summer present this year was an solar panel to charge my phone.

    Do I work for a renewables company nope I work for one I the 4 largest global contractors in the oil industry.

    It’s about choice

    Google inpex ichthys.

    This will soon be the worlds biggest subsea LPG field. Inpex is a Japanese owned energy company.

    The unfortunate thing is that uk plc is broke.

    And sentiment has little room when there is no cash in the coffers.

    We spend 25% of our GDP on welfare compared to 2.7% on defence. So it depends in what’s important to you?

    Oh My Lord,

    I’ve seen the Island Princess.

    A tourist boat for the south coast yes.

    A commuter boat in the Clyde what hair brained idiot thought this would be a suitable vessel.

    Probably the same idiot who has never done the crossing at 7am on a cold January morning. The seabus was perfect, modern, padded seats and warm. As well as a decent loo!!!!

    I feel as though my range rover has just been replaced with a mk 1 landrover. Nice and historic to look at, but would I want to commute in it!!!!!!!!
