          ROFL Renua would be more in your line. After all, wasn’t it a Fine Gaeler who jumped ship to form it? After she didn’t get her own way?

    All territorial and economic claims on uninhabitable islets hundreds of miles out to sea are spurious nonsense.

      As per the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which the Brits ratified in 1997. Yet they still claim sovereignty because they plonked a Union Jack on it in 1955 and gifted it to the Scots in 1972. The area offered oil and gas reserve potential as is well known and studied.

      I enjoyed Scottish Fisheries Minister Fergus Ewing speaking on the wireless at the weekend, repeatedly warning Irish fishing vessels to ‘cease and desist’. It was all very Paisley-ite.

      This current dispute is not about fishing at all.

      Leave it to the gannets – ’tis their home.
