The Case for Scottish Independence

Posted by rantingkraut on May 9, 2010

Some of my best friends are Scottish, but … I still think they should be given their freedom -with all the financial responsibility that entails:

The Scots have two highly developed important cities and several great universities and medical schools; their intellectual and entrepreneurial tradition is second to none. They don’t need us.

Nor do we need them. Above all, we would be much better off without the notorious Barnett formula; it is obviously unfair that the Scots should receive more public money per head than the English, especially when their taxes and benefits are so different. Let them get on without us.” (source)
