GUEST,Dazbo at work BS: Scotland does not exist (153* d) RE: BS: Scotland does not exist 19 Feb 13

Now I may be a simpleton when it comes to economics but if the money for student fees, free prescriptions, care of the elderly etc comes out of the Scottish Budget then, assuming they get proportionally the same money as in England per head, the money spent on that must come out of other budgets. From this it must follow (in my mind) that to make up this shortfall in other budgets the Scots must have to pay for something that the English don't have to pay for. What do I get for free that the Scots have to pay for?

If the answer is nothing then how can England not be subsidising Scotland either directly or by Scotland not paying its way in the Union?
