It’s not surprising when I was watching the votes come in there were huge areas of land that were only returning 10s of thousands of votes. And it’s only going to get worse with ageing population and declining birth rates
On reading my post again I did not make it clear , Scotland pays in £1,700 per head more than England in taxes. England Spend....£10,966.00 Scotland spend... £12,181.00 Taxes raised / head England £9,054.00 , Scotland..£10,741.00.
One point I would raise here is that the facts are not presented to the English people in their entirety ; from the GERS report ( Government Economic Report for Scotland) Scotland receives £12,181.00 per Head while England receives only £10,966.00 sounds bad until you see that Scotland Pays in taxes £1,700.00 per head while England only pays in £1,200.00. This is not a one off situation it has happened for the last 30 years in a row ; convenient fact to omit when you want to give the impression that England subsidises Scotland .
You are right, a very opportune moment gone but if Cameron reneges on promises for change, as it seems he's now trying for linkage, it sure might rear it's head again in short order. Yes, if they had the vote there probably is a bias overseas to the Union, but Salmond did not help his case with the educated by not being sorted on key issues such as currency and the economy going forward, just what were the income and cost projections to show the economic case was viable. Too much appeared to be wishful fiction, deamland not reality, without the figures.
