Continuing our "it's about time that we took a jigsaw to the border and cast Scotland adrift to pay for her own feckless spending" theme, I give you Deogolwulf.
Since the English pay towards the luxury of Scottish client-nationalism (“Down with England, but don’t cancel the cheques!”), the English might feel entitled to call its bluff, and enjoy the fruit thereof: namely, the independence of England from Scotland. That way, not only would the West Lothian question be answered, but also the Scots would be free to dig deeply into their own pockets to pay for their own vast public expenditure.

Now, I ask you: wouldn’t that be a sight worth seeing?

Yes, yes it would.
