Yeah Wullie and the romans got it wrong as well - they built theirs too far south. I live 30miles north of Hadrians
fence and I'm still 30 miles south of Berwick.  Don't worry its just the government trying to get back all the
extra money that Scotland has had over the past 25+ years under the Barnett formula to the detriment of
poorer areas in England and Wales. 

Geoff - and don't think I dislike the Scots, it is my favourite part of the UK and I've been married to 3 of them
(mothers in law - well thats a different matter)
