    I'm going to suggest a measurement of a country's intellectual capability. The minestrone scale.

    How many Nobel laureates does a country have relative to it's current pollution.

    So for example Scotland has 15 Nobel Prizes, 6 million population.

    I know what you are all saying, What about Watt, Adam Smith etc who gave so much to the world. But we must be hard in our appraisal.

    Honest, nobody is more gutted that me that we can't use the inventors of the TV, engine and phone, the wealth of nations.

    But I'm going to go with 15 Nobel prizes for 6 million people
