Do you not think that Scotland might get more attention because they’ve had a separatist government up there for 16 years and they spend most of their time denying the quite obvious Union dividend exists?According to the article I read a second ago, Scotland, N Ireland and Wales get roughly 20% more than the average English player. N Ireland still can't live with the extra budget and are in more debt than usual. But of course, it's not Scotland so no one mentions it.
I personally don’t think the anti-English nature of the Barnett formula is talked about enough.
