Allan... I respect your approach to this, even if my own feelings don't coincide with yours on the Westlothian question, as it used to be called, and still may revert to..

However, removing a level of bureaucracy????

Since when did any government remove bureaucracy? For starters, they develop bureaucratic systems for the removal process and from that point on, Parkinson's Law takes over.

If you think of the UK structures that an independent Scotland would wish to set up for themselves, I genuinely reckon it would take a penny in the pound tax rise to cover them. (Shekel in the Groat or whatever..)
