Nick. For the financial year 2016/17, the Scottish Parliament has approximately £33.18 billion to spend, regardless of where it came from or whether you think it deserved it or whatever.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Yup. Glad we can agree the Scottish Government does have money after all.

Money for nothing - Finland’s financial leap in the dark
Every month, 560 euros (£495) appears in Marja-Liisa Lähteinen’s bank account, courtesy of the Finnish Social Insurance Institution. Lähteinen, 32, who lives in the eastern city of Kuopio, receives the monthly deposit as one of 2,000 randomly-selected participants in a trial of Universal Basic Income (UBI) being held in the country.
