Nicola Sturgeon's economic case for separation has received a "hammer blow" after her chief economist published figures showing Scotland's "dividend" from being part of the UK has surged to almost £2,000 per person. The General Expenditure and Revenue Scotland (Gers) figures for 2019/20 showed each Scot received £1,633 more than the UK average in public spending thanks to the Barnett Formula. This is the equivalent of 9.2 per cent of UK total spending. But tax revenue north of the Border was £308 less than the UK average, including a geographic share of North Sea oil, accounting for only 8 per cent of the UK total. The Scottish Tories said that together this meant the "Union dividend" per person has increased to £1,941, up from £1,805 the previous year, and separation would require spending cuts equivalent to the entire NHS budget. Scotland's notional deficit - the difference between spending and tax revenue - surged by £2 billion to £15.1 billion last year. This was the equivalent of 8.6 per cent of GDP - more than treble the UK figure of 2.5 per cent and nearly three times the 3 per cent required for EU membership.

Just before Tiffany Trump, the least publicly seen of the presidential children, appeared onscreen at the Republican National Convention, the Lincoln Project leaked her speech with the simple tweet: “Our apologies.” I glanced over the document with interest, but I couldn’t quite get the sense of it until Tiffany herself was there, stood in front of a lectern in a glittery powder-blue pants suit. “Rather than allowing Americans the right to form our own beliefs,” she said, with purpose, there is a “misinformation system that keeps people mentally enslaved” in America. Who is responsible for this enslavement? “The media,” of course — oh, and “tech giants”. “Ask yourselves, why are we prevented from seeing certain information?” Tiffany continued darkly, her eyes fixed. The sentence was given context-free, and left in the air to allow us to wonder. Globalist conspiracies? QAnon? Accurate bus timetables? Really, it could have been anything.
