Labour finance minister in dream land
JACK McCONNELL, Scotland's finance minister said
"Differences of opinion between Scotland and England are a
natural consequence of devolution. Diversity should be
celebrated, not condemned or exploited. We need a new, mature
political culture in Scotland which embraces diversity and helps
devolution within the union succeed."
He went on to witter "The
Nationalist (SNP)agenda is to set up every possible difference between
Scotland and London as a building block for separation. In
contrast, devolution allows genuine differences while also
securing the benefits of partnership within the UK."
What benefits are they JACK?
Our oil , gas and seas are raped to fill Londons coffers, our EU money
is hidden from us using the barrnet formula, you veto our
'parliament' and take control of it as you please.
The only benefit of the 'union' is to the South East of England - and that
my friend has to and will stop.
