Scots should decide destiny

JUST a word on the devolution of Scotland argument. Like many others in England I think the Scots ought to have their own destiny decided by themselves and not London.

It would also save money because it would make them responsible for their own health service and paying out their own benefit system and not being paid from our treasury, surely saving millions to the English taxpayer.

I realise there are many alternative arguments, but I do not want to see a state that desires freedom but wants all the benefits it had of belonging to union of countries.

This we cannot afford.
