EU cash for Scotland renegotiated by whom?

The Highlands and Islands of Scotland, being one of the poorer areas of Europe, has received approximately 200m a year in EU (European Union aid money), Brussels may well cut this and cash to other EU member states.

This is all well and good, the EU is trying to reorganise ALL its finances, however, it is LONDON and not the Scottish parliament that will negotiate the terms and timeline for these changes.

Why did we vote for our own parliament in Edinburgh?
