Fake fight over Scots slice of EU funding
You've seen the fake fight between Donald "Ill run again" Dewar and John
Reid, staged to make you think the Scottish office is working in your
interests, now we have round two Gordon 'once a scot' Brown and
John "Chumbawumba" Prescott 'fighting' over EU funding to Scotland.
Apparently London was ready to cut our slice of that cake because we
have our devolved 'parliament'. Better we go independent now rather than
pray London doesn't walk all over us via the Barnett formula.
