    Default Iran sanctions threaten North Sea deal

    So our new chlorinated chicken washing pork hormone injecting trading partner looks like a real nice keeper. Mrs May really needs to find a backbone and stand up to this bully. Perhaps she should call Macron, he's been doing a stand up job of saying what we're all thinking.. in the lions den no less.

    The Rhum gas field in the North Sea, which supplies 5% of the UK's gas, is half-owned by the Iranian State Oil Company.
    BP, which owns the other half, is in the process of offloading its share to small North Sea specialist Serica, but that deal has not completed.
    BP does huge amounts of business in the US and will be desperately keen to avoid being seen as a business partner of the Iranian state.
    It's a good example of how sanctions against a state can have wide repercussions for the international business community.

    Couldn't have said it better myself.

    It's time for the world to impose tough sanctions on the corrupt warmongers of the US and israel.

    Netanyahu (three corruption cases pending) has been lying about Iran's nuclear capabilities since 1992, they're always 1-5 years away from destroying the world.

    As I said, he's corrupt. He lies for a living, as does his bosom buddy Trump.

    They deserve each other. The world deserves neither.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    I thought the USA was already trying to start a trade war with many other countries?

    Mind you May is trying to start a war between Northern Ireland and Eire.

    Please note you are not allowed to criticise the Israeli government in any way. This is immediately branded as antisemitism and will be a superconducting magnet for opprobrium.

    The accepted order of things is Israel can invade anywhere it likes. If the locals don't like being displaced and start resisting, Israel can point to the eighty nuclear weapons its allowed to have. Any attempt to build military capability to defend invaded countries will be met with crippling economic and technological sanctions.

    The POTUS posts on CUK.

    Antisemitism should not be tolerated. Except by the Labour party.

    Who was it that thought that getting in to bed with the Iranians regarding a resource that we are massively dependent was a good idea in the first place?

    Measure your toleration on a scale of one to ken.

    BP and its partner, the Iranian Oil Company UK Limited, IOC UK Ltd, have announced that gas production and export had begun from the Rhum field, the UK's largest undeveloped gas discovery, 240 miles northeast of Aberdeen. The partners in the Rhum field are BP (operator) 50% and Iranian Oil Company UK Limited 50%.
    The 2005 United Kingdom general election was held on Thursday, 5 May 2005 to elect 646 members to the House of Commons. The Labour Party led by Tony Blair won their third consecutive victory
    Three-and-a-half years, two extensions, seven defections, 21 deselections, three prime ministers, countless amendments, two prorogations, one Supreme Court judgement, 66 million Brits losing the will to live and were still at square one...
