WORLD'S LARGEST OIL FIELD NOT FOUND
You may remember the Prime Minister came to visit Shetland under the tightest secrecy ever seen in Shetland last week and the national press knew nothing about it. Nor the local press.
Buster was there as he landed at the airport at 1623 of course to take photos.
Mr Cameron came to Shetland to say absolutely nothing about anything and allowed the local media 6 minutes of questions.
Which he did not answer.
Now you are all wondering why the PM made a very rushed, and hugely expensive trip to the Shetland Oils, missing his cabinet meeting, and just making it back to Glasgow for the Games.
Well you should be.
Because his haste was nothing to do with wanting to see us. He did make one tiny announcement about energy in which Scots could save £46 per annum but he could have put out a press release from No 10 about that.
Energy. Mmmmmmm? Black gold?
As luck would have it, Buster was flying his drone around the West of Shetland oilfields recently when he noticed something strange.
A drilling rig, definitely not on contract to BP, and not near the Clair Field did not suddenly de-man and send all the workers home and they are not on full pay.
Nor did he overhear the rig manager say "Come back in September and don't speak to any wee ginger cats or your sacked."
The rig did not discover "sweet oil", the most highly-prized stuff for turning into petroleum spirit, nor was it in shallower water than the normal 150m some of the other Clair oil is lurking at.
Nor did it find it in quantities so large that "biggest" and "world" could be used in the same sentence.
Mr Cameron did not request the oil companies keep this massive wealth hidden from the Scottish electorate until after the referendum.
He would never do that.
Just like Westminster didn't before the last referendum.
We're sorry we have absolutely no news for you about the vast oil and gas reserves not found in the Atlantic but when we do hear anything you'll be the first to know.
We'll bung a photo up of a drilling rig so you know what they don't look like when they are not contracted to BP no-where near the Clair Field. (lat. 60.629° long. -2.603°)
