Business leaders urged to back UK

NICK CLEGG will tonight urge ­Scottish business leaders to speak out in support of Scotland staying in the UK.

Scottish independence: Oil predictions ‘too low’ | independence | Scoop.it
UK GOVERNMENT predictions for the future of North Sea oil are based on “very low” forecasts which are well below independent analysis, an expert in the field said yesterday.
Gorddon Smith's insight:

Just a repeat of the 1977 / 1997 UK Gov Strategy - Lie and talk Scotland oil down. Just all so sadly predictable, and something that is being seen through by the voting public.
