You seriously think the rest of the UK will even notice the loss? 6.8bn in North Sea Oil revenues for 2013? We spent almost twice that on the London Olympics. :D :D :D

Good. I'd be delighted to see no English money in any of your banks or financial institutions. Best of luck with the oil income, woot-woot. You are really going to need it.

Sorry if this has been asked before. It's after 5am, I'm off to bed soon and I'm too tired to search.
