I declare an interest in Scottish Independence. I am Scottish and proud of it – it is a great country and the people and warm and friendly. The one thing that nobody seems to be talking about is whether England would continue to subsidise the Scotland. If not how is Scotland going to survive and if so, it is hardly independence. I can’t help feel that there is a certain amount of ego and hubris driving Alex Salmond and his agenda. Scotland is a small country with more sheep than people and the public sector is pretty large as are the social problems. So, unless the sheep are going to start paying tax and contributing to national output I wonder how the finances are going to work out.
