SNP resort to scare tactics over future of Barnett Formula

Commenting on the letter sent from the Prime Minister to FirstWillie RennieWillie Rennie Minister Alex Salmond addressing nationalist claims over the future of Barnett funding, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

“The nationalists are now resorting to scare tactics in attempt to win votes for their independence plans. This letter makes clear that it is Alex Salmond and Alex Salmond alone who is trying to put about the heebie-jeebies over the future of Scotland’s funding formula within the UK. But just like the bogey man who was supposed to hide in your cupboard most grown-ups realise that this is nothing more than scaremongering. Alex Salmond should focus on setting out how he proposes to fund the many black holes in his own independence white paper.”
