That is truly shocking and nearly as bad as British taxpayers paying £80 million for the Lloyds sponsorship of the LONDON olympics

All of it needs to be stopped now, and every penny piece they owe should paid back to the treasury before they start their wasting again

Nearly as bad as all the duty from Scottish Whisky going straight to London :smt004

And what happened to Scottish oil revenues???

It is about time Scotland got something back. I think RBS sponsorship is about as OK as is Aviva's.

Not quite. Those two well known prudent Scots, Brown and Darling spent most of it bailing out Banks and Building Societies in Scotland and the North of England, building a Scottish Parliament and creating non jobs for relocated civil servants in the same locations.

The economic boom in London and the South East was funded by Americans, Japanese and Chinese!!

There were/are no such thing as Scottish oil revenues. The oil fields were paid for and operated by British and US firm's investment and capital, not Scottish ones, and the Scottish economy profited greatly from the support business.
