Alex Salmond : politician
Scottish politician and current First Minister of Scotland, Alex Salmond has provoked a fresh row over his economic forecasting after predicting an independent Scotland would enjoy a mini "oil boom" worth up to £57bn in North Sea tax revenues.

The Scottish government said its analysis of short-term forecasts of North Sea oil revenue showed that Scotland's potential tax take from oil and gas would equal between £41bn and £57bn by 2017-18, averaging out at £48bn over six years.
