Aye but you are only kidding as you know that some decisions made at UK level impact funding to Holyrood ;)
Many, many things decided in Westminster impact funding in Scotland. However, if it falls within the remit of Westminster, tough. Personally, I believe Scotland should be independent. The reasons for the Act of Union are long since gone, ergo either leave or shut up. The vote said stay = shut up. You can't keep running to Westminster every time something doesn't go your way otherwise with the current crew you'd be there every 5 minutes.

If it were up to me I'd have cut them loose years ago, and all funding. Thing is, BJ doesn't seem to want to. Why is that?

Perhaps because the majority of people in Scotland (ignore recent "polls" funded by independence supporters) are in favour of the union.
There is a mutually beneficial relationship between all parts of the UK.

A quick look at these figures gives the Scotgov view of public finances.

BTW.......I have just bought you a new Ferrari as my friends and I think you need one.
The terms and conditions of how you repay the costs to me are in the post.
Say thank you as you would not have been able to do this without my help.
