Formula politics

Why is there no mention of the Liberal Democrat's review of the Barnett formula on the BBC's England section?

If The SNP warn[s] that changing the system would result in Scottish spending cuts, it should mean there is more money to waste / spend in England!

Why has the Labour Party got no plans to review the formula when a Scottish Labour Party spokesman recognises the "£11bn black hole at the heart of the nationalist plan to divorce Scotland from the rest of Britain" if the English subsidy was scrapped?
