Telegraph subs. If they still have them, that is……

Europe is not going to be exactly rushing to fill the vacuum in Scotland’s finances left by removal of the English teet.

Teet?

In any case, if you want to know why Scotland can “afford” free higher education, free social care, free prescriptions, a 4pc pay rise for healthcare workers, and all the rest, but England can’t, ask the late Joe Barnett.

Joel…..

This blog was rather founded on he cry “Don;t these people have editors?” and the passing years have made the answer “No” increasingly accurate.

  1. The missing “t” here and use of “;” are joyous, given the context:

    “This blog was rather founded on he cry “Don;t these people have editors?” and the passing years have made the answer “No” increasingly accurate.”

    Not having a dig, just funny.

  2. Muphry’s Law strikes again!

    There was a glorious time at Forbes. Bird who had been at The Guardian (she was an economics reporter pushed from that job as not being up to scratch – not good enough for The G’s economics?) started shouting at me over something in Forbes. At which point I said “Muphry’s Law!”. Which she used to insist that I was terrible because I couldn’t even spell Murphy’s Law. The two actually being different of course.

    But then the subeditor at Forbes went in and “corrected” Muphry’s to Murphy’s. Which rather destroyed the gloriousness of her mistake.

  3. Barnet’s going to have to end. And i reckon it can be done matter of factly, at an administrative stroke, with very little fuss. Avoid large granstanding trailing of the policy. Just do it. Yes people with less money to play with will howl, but they’ll be howling for more money to play with than some other person, and that other person isn’t really going to be convinced with the argument = “because i’m Scotch.”

  4. Over at the Ambush Predator blog there is a newspaper clip about an amphibious pitcher. The first MLB pitcher for ages who can pitch with either hand. Presumably nobody knew how to spell ambidextrous.

  5. Pitching with either hand is definitely a rare skill – being sinister I can sorta throw with my left, but I’m useless with my right. Pitching accurately underwater must be an exceedingly rare skill, whatever hand.
