Cameron urges Holyrood ‘to move toward us’

As BBC reports, Prime Minister David Cameron has written a letter to Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon urging Holyrood ”to move toward us” concerning the devolution of financial powers. Last year, after the Scotland independence referendum failed, an agreement was reached to devolve more powers to Scotland. The Scots, in no way surprised, are still waiting. The report says negotiations have been on-going and Cameron’s letter suggests Scotland needs to give-and-take a little more too. Westminster is concerned Scotland will end up not paying its ‘fair share’ in taxes; the ‘no detriment’ principle is the source of controversy. It says neither party should suffer financially from the other’s decisions. While Scotland and Westminster continue to debate, the rest of us are left waiting.
