BARROSO, Jose Manuel (European Commission President)

On the BBC Andrew Marr Show he said it would be “extremely difficult, if not impossible” for an independent Scotland to join the EU.

BBC Great British Programmes

The normally impartial BBC would seem to be firmly in the Better Together camp with, among others, the following series: The Great British (TGB) Winter, TGB Bake Off, TGB Garden Revival, TGB Cook Off, TGB Year, TGB Sewing Bee, TGB Narrator, TGB Food Revival and TGB Menu. To drive the point home, many of the backdrops are festooned with union flags.

DARLING, Alistair MP. Leader of the Better Together campaign.

Hillary Clinton

January 2014 North Sea drilling licensing round

The UK Government has announced a new licensing round for drilling for oil and gas in the North Sea. Coalition Ministers admitted that around 20 billion barrels of oil were still there to be found. In 2013 Alistair Darling, leader of Better Together, accused Alex Salmon of lying when he said that there were billions of pounds of reserves left in the North Sea. He said “it simply isn’t true”. In July 2013 the Labour MP accused Mr Salmond of having exaggerated the amount of oil and gas left in the North Sea, after the First Minister suggested around 24 billion barrels remained. Mr Darling insisted that the actual figure was one-twelfth of the First Minister’s figure.

Mobile Phone Charges

In June 2013 the Better Together coalition published a paper stating that, following independence,  consumers would have to pay more when using their phones south of the border. They did so in the full knowledge that the EU was about to dramatically reduce mobile phone charges with a view to differences between national and roaming charges being cut to zero by 2015.
