nuclear submarine base
Indeed, now what are you going to do with an empty submarine base?
90% of its oil revenue
The UK is a net importer of oil these days - there is no oil revenue. You may be able to make a small profit on the last trickles, though.
permanent seat on the UN security council
Unlikely, but I know for sure who won't be on it...
That doesn't take into account the oil/gas off the West coast of Scotland nor does it take into account the Scottish stake of the Rockall claim.
BTW i'd hardly call 1.5 trillion barrels a trickle... and that's just the north Sea.
who gives a fuck about a seat on the security council to be quite frank???
As for what to do with an empty submarine base??? now that's EASY.. refit it as a support base much like the port at Nig off the north east which makes astonishing money servicing oil rigs, support vessels and exploratory rigs... combine that with a wee touch of the support role Aberdeen port plays and you have a winner... simple enough for you?
