On September 18th, Scotland’s voters will decide whether to stay as part of the United Kingdom or go it alone as an independent country. The polls currently have the Yes and No vote neck and neck – “not a cigarette paper between them” you could say.
My view is that Scotland should remain as part of the UK. However, the amount of money that Scotland receives should be recalculated so that they receive less per person from Westminster. It is a ridiculous situation that the residents of Scotland and most of the EU receive free University tuition in Scotland, subsidised by English tax payers, who have to pay full whack.
Many people in the North East of England are worse off than those in Scotland, but are effectively subsidising the Scottish. This is blatantly unfair.
