    You have to be able to sell your house to move.

    From the hostile tone it is no surprise that Drew Hendry is an SNP politician.

    He lays out all the stuff Scotland gets free prescriptions university tuition etc but gives no real justification for this, or concern about where the money comes from.

    There should be a level playing field across all Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Measures to address particular regional issues should then be a separate debate.

    The UK doesn’t need a regional parliament in Scotland making it worse.

      Hear, hear. Local and central government is sufficient and necessary.

        I’m not so sure about local.

    The Oxford Dictionary defines the formal meaning of ‘devolution’ as ‘descent to a lower or worse state’.
    Scotland was better when it was formerly run by Scottish MPs in Westminster and its Local Authorities.
    Then Blair started the process that led to duplication, discord, delay, losses and waste, added at the expense and decline of the UK: as a whole into a hole.

    Scrap the Barnett formula.

    Again over 14 years your party in government has allowed and even encouraged this whinging. Another slice of the reason it must go.
    The “overheated” London and southeast is dismissed by this spokesman rather than praised as a prop for the greater provision of services in Scotland than we have in London and southeast. It would be laughable if it wasn’t serious! Again we need a government which sorts this out by disallowing more socialism in Scotland even than we have here, rather than actively encouraging it.
    Again, the piper must play the paymaster’s tune, not vice versa.

    How incredibly rude!
