Well, it's past its sell-by date now anyway really, look at the graph
half way down with BBC NEWS page:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-26326117

Production peaked in 2000 and has been on a downward slope ever since.
In 10 years it'll be gone whatever happens.

It wouldn't matter if it was going to be gone tomorrow. Or in 20 years.
The Nats didn't have any sort of plan for "the day after": win
independence and then sweep up the bits afterwards.

Do you mean the Mr Salmond who said that it was too risky to count on
North Sea revenues for revenue spending and so it would be put in an oil
fund to be used for other projects? That Mr Salmond?
