The late Denis Healey

Asked about his thoughts about claims that Scotland being subsidized by England he reminded the questioner that Joel Barnett, (he of the Barnett formula), was his deputy at the Treasury at the time the share of the national income pot Scotland should receive was decided.

He added:

” Scotland pays more than its fair share and these myths are simply perpetuated to cloud the issue by those that are opposed to independence.”

Yes, I read that report. As the police didn't release any details of their identity, can you point me in the direction of where it says they were EU immigrants?

Do you seriously think Scottish homeless beggars are getting on a train to Carlisle?you know fine well its Romanians and/or Czech Republicans, its not just here, they are at it all over the EU from Oslo to Paris. When those scumbags tried to sell a woman outside Primark did you think for even one minute
that it was Scots involved.

Denis healy ! now there's a Silly Billy, couldnt even beat Michael Foot in an election for Leader.
That of course was well after he had had to beg money from the IMF.Ironicaly he was turfed out
of office when the Nats supported the Tories in 1979.

So you don't know for sure, but don't let facts get in the way of your wee story. In the meantime, I suggest you google "casual racism", you might learn something (but probably not)

Dykejumper: You are clearly of an old vintage.

It was indeed unfortunate the Labour Party chose to take the "Bevan" route with the appointment of Michael Foot who started the process that led to the demise of the Party. The Party would have been much better served under the leadership of Denis.

His begging bowl approach to the IMF was rendered necessary through the incompetence of other chancellors before he took up office and it bears no semblance to the nearly 3trillion borrowing of the Tory Party.

The Callaghan government was brought down by in-fighting within the Party who tumbled that Sunny Jim was an unmitigated disaster as Prime Minister and undermined his authority to the extent that he could not function as the leader of the Party and Prime Minister. The SNP had nothing to do with the downfall of the labour party
