Public Meeting: Crude Britannia – how oil shaped a nation
Monday 20th September, 7pm on Zoom
Terry Macalister introduces a discussion on his book written with James Marriott and published earlier this year. Crude Britannia explores how oil has shaped the politics and economics of the UK and Scotland. The topic is particularly important as both Westminster and Holyrood cling on to a policy of maximum economic recovery of hydrocarbons from the North Sea and Westminster looks to give the go adead for production from the new Cambo oilfield west of Shetland. Register in advance for this meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
