Bosses get an earful.

Byline: ALASTAIR ROBERTSON

US-BORN boss of oil giant BP has made clear his preference for maintaining the UK intact. Bob Dudley has been hailed for being the first high profile business leader to enter into the independence debate. Probably because BP is worth so much to the Scottish economy, not even SNP apparatchiks are prepared to give him an earful. That's what Rupert Soames, boss of power company Aggreko reckons happens to bosses who make their antiindependence views known. He told a House of Lords committee: " Over the past couple of years, anybody who has dared open their mouths on the subject with views that are contrary to those of the SNP have brought down on themselves rains of bile and ire, which are very unpleasant."
