Subject: RE: BS: scottish independence
I wonder how many have ignored the political nonsense and found the facts for themselves.

ONS and treasury figures concur that grouping all public spending, Scotland spends just over 1,200 per head of population than the combined rest of The UK.

It isn't hard. Verifiable audited accounts. You can google them and with five mins and a pocket calculator see it for yourself.

So, if more is spent on social infrastructure, where is it going? SNP have control of spending it, so what are they doing with it, and what difference would the other 2% make if they controlled the lot?

By following nationalistic dreams, the idiots have divided a nation. The UK will feel divided regardless of the outcome. Scotland will feel divided regardless of the outcome.

Well done Salmond. I assume your grandfather fought against repugnant nationalism in the same war my father did?
