I'd have no problem with Scotland taking its percentage share, with fair bargaining.
No more Barnett formula, I'd start campaigning for decent distribution of wealth in the remaining UK then.
I wouldn't hold my breath of course but that would be my personal strategy.
I imagine Westminster will try to screw Scotland though, and as I'm not somebody who lives in Scotland it is unlikely I'd make much of a fuss about that...personal selfish reasons apply of course.

Since this discovery is in Shetland water I wonder if the nordic people of the Shetland isles will take the oportunity to seek independance. They've been under control of the Scots with not enough say in their own affairs for far too long.
