Scotland can’t afford not to have an independent welfare  policy!
Poverty in Scotland

Welfare policy has been much in the news recently, with suggestions from “Project Fear” that benefits, and pensions, would somehow be less affordable in an Independent Scotland, and claims that Scotland would have to follow UK welfare policy after Independence.

Jim Arnott's insight:

Vote Yes in the 2014 Referendum on independence for Scotland.

This morning’s Daily Record carries a story about Ed Balls’ speech on welfare yesterday. Commendably, the Labour-supporting paper isn’t shy of pointing out the implications of Balls’ comments:

“Scots could get welfare benefits at lower rates than people in wealthy parts of England under plans being worked on by Labour. Shadow Chancellor Ed Balls yesterday raised the idea of a regional cap on welfare, opening the door to variations in a range of social security benefits.

Balls said the welfare cap of £25,000 a year per household should be higher in London but could be lower in parts of the UK where housing is cheaper.”
