Alex Salmond takes questions on oil price, Trump in first radio call-in show

Alex Salmond has been quizzed on the price of oil in his first phone-in show for LBC Radio. The former First Minister’s first caller, a man named Paul from St Albans, asked him how Scotland could still succeed independently at the current low oil price. He said: “You based your financial security in Scotland on the oil price of about $110 a barrel – I notice it’s trading at around $30. How would Scotland be now if you’d succeed in gaining independence?”

Salmond and Trump lock war of words in windfarm battle

Former first minister Alex Salmond unleashed a scathing attack on “three-time loser” Donald Trump last night, accusing him of damaging the Scottish economy. The Gordon MP condemned his “treatment of Scotland”, which he said would prompt Scottish Americans to join the “ever-growing list of people alienated” by the businessman. The Trump Organisation was quick to retaliate, branding Mr Salmond a “has-been and totally irrelevant”.

Opinion: Focus on what should be done – not sly politicking

The UK Government moves like lightning to tax the industry when oil prices are high but moves at a snail’s pace when oil prices are low. In a glaring example of oil tax hypocrisy, George Osborne announced a shale oil fund for the north of England in his Autumn Statement. This is before a single barrel of oil has been produced, yet, Scotland, with more than 40 billion barrels of oil is still waiting.
