English Conservative Tax Cuts?

Would proposals to reduce inheritance tax be more popular if they only applied in England as nursing care for the elderly is free in Scotland and they don't have to pay any additional taxes to cover the costs!?!

We'll avoid mentioning university tuition fees....

Let them become independent. I welcome it. But who will finance their nation?

Peeler, I expect England would continue to fund Scotland, but through increased contributions to the EU this time!

They'll fund their own nation. Unless you think small countries can't fund themselves without contributions from big neighbours, in which case I presume Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria and Denmark must be secretly raking it in from France and Germany. How else to explain the great prosperity of those nations?
