If Salmond's life-long, very wet-dream of Scottish independence was to come true, and we presumably, and rightly, kept control of our (short term) money-spinning oilfields, could we not join OPEC?
I appreciate this is a long shot and slightly out there, but, seriously, think about it...
The OPEC statute stipulates that: "any country with a substantial net export of crude petroleum, which has fundamentally similar interests to those of Member Countries (making money?), may become a Full Member of the Organisation...".
Picture it, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Alex Salmond, King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz and all the other members, sat round the table.
