    I think if Scotland were independent that demarcation line would be illegal. Remembering it being discussed at the time. The original line is the one recognised by International Law. The 1999 one is just a madey-up piece of nonsense.

    I seem to remember this being considered at the time as a way to ensure Westminster access to oil, post hypothetical independence.

    Remember reading about this at the time, although I dont recall the border line being that shown on their map. IIRC it began at Berwick upon Tweed then sloped upwards at an angle of about 30 degrees

    I remember it being on Question Time when it came out and also remember teh 30 degree angle thing you mention.

    The upshot of the discussions at the time was that it was illegal and people were laughing at the defence given for the change by the Nu-Labour arsewipe/spokesman.
