Scots EU money being STILL being stolen by greedy Westminster
The block grant of cash allocated back to Scotland under ridiculous
rules set by Whitehall to squeeze taxes from Scotland at all levels
is now in insidious mode.
Money allocated as 'additioanlity money' earmarked by the EU for Scotland
has been withheld by Westminster as it would push Scotlands funding
over the preset limits imposed by London.
Bruce Crawford (SNP) said "It does not matter
how you try to open this can of worms - it always stays
closed.We hope for a close examination of
the whole issue and meantime we can only keep asking
London will never admit is gouges Scotland for taxes far and above the
monies we get given grudgingly back from the treasury down South.
We are a milk cow. Milked dry to pay for Toryesque projects under Blair,
the same way we have bankrolled Westminster since the North Sea started
giving its bounty of gas and oil.
Unfortunately, most Scots are NOT able to grasp the simple premise they
are being taken for a ride, bled dry and left to rot slowly whilst the
South enjoys the benefits.
