Scottish Politics Thread

I'm sure there was a pro-Nat paper trying to spin it that the PM was trying to "steal" credit from the FM.
Had a quick look at the Pravda The National - Scottish News, Sport, Politics and more headlines but didn't find it there. However, as you would expect, they have their own spin on it. This is from Monday though..

The National, has less journalistic integrity than Readers Wives.

An independent Scotland wouldn't be economically weaker if they stopped "sending £ billions to Westminster to be spent on 'vanity' projects".
:?
 
Personally, I think not having second rate local councillors trying to big it up on the international stage might go some way to improving the financial situation.

Oh dear, I’m so sorry I hope your total amnesia gets better soon. You seem to have missed the fact that the population of Scotland get more taxpayers money spent on them than those in England, or the fact that the Barnett formula exists. Perhaps as a bedtime treat you should try reading the latest GERS report (SG’s own figures) and explain the missing £16bn, between what Scotland raises in tax and spends.

There are none so blind as those who WILL not see.

Edit: Now directed at the tube that made the original comment.

The problem with the Express is that it is really just a mirror to Das National(ist). The stories are sensationalised versions to grab attention but have little to no real substance once you look at them.
This is true. Sturgeon is so thick skinned, there's no way she'd be "red faced". In her head, she's right, always, and everyone else is wrong and at fault.
