Opinion – SNP’s fiscal autonomy would leave £9bn gap in Scotland’s finances, says IFS | Politics | The Guardian – John Gelmini

Dr Alf raises the very real and alarming prospect of our tartan-clad friends extracting even more money out of English taxpayers in the event of a Labour victory.

People, as Sir John Major said yesterday in full and without interruption on Sky News need to wake up, try to retain the Union and vote Conservative.

My attitude to the Barnett Formula is that it should be abolished, and that the Nicola Sturgeon bluff should be called. Either remain in the Union with no Barnett Formula and no other subsidies but with the guarantee of overall defence and emergency assistance for failed Scottish banks,should that ever happen;  or be thrown out of the Union and left entirely on their own.

With the oil price low Scotland’s finances are in a serious mess, which is why Nicola Sturgeon needs more money from English taxpayers to balance the books and pay for her SNP profligacy.

As it is I can see a second election as a possibility because this one is too close to call.

As part of a coalition government with Labour, the SNP would expect English voters to find the missing billions – this is on top of the Barnett formula that favors Scotland. Perhaps, you don’t think this is fair?

Tough, it looks like voting Labour will be a real vote for the SNP.

If you don’t think Labour will win an outright majority, surely you shouldn’t vote Labour, otherwise you are helping the SNP?

Thoughts?
