Scots voters should hope rest of UK does not notice subsidies


The Scottish media has been full of Labour, Tory and Lib Dem representatives united in the view that Scotland will suffer economically in the event that the SNP make significant electoral gains and the Scottish Parliament obtains full fiscal autonomy.

The only thing that I can take from this is that Scotland must currently be being subsidised to the hilt by the rest of the UK.

If this be the case, Scottish voters would do well to vote for unionist parties and hope that the rest of the UK doesn’t notice until the Union has been bled dry!
