Lord Barnett says Barnett Formula "dangerous and unfair".

Barnett formula could split UK, says the man himself - Scotsman.com News
THE man behind the financial formula that results in Scotland getting £1,600 more per head than England yesterday warned it could result in the break-up of the UK.
Lord Barnett told a new investigation into his 30-year-old formula for distributing government expenditure that it was dangerous and unfair.
He said the system had created a situation where an "astute politician" at Holyrood could use Scotland's extra cash to adopt policies such as scrapping prescription charges or student fees – which the SNP has done – and create jealousy and resentment among English voters.

Lord Barnett is the only politician astute and brave enough to point out the deliberate English baiting by the SNP.
