We will be worse off Independent: Scottish Finance Minister cabinet report leaked

John Swinney, the Scottish Finance Minister, has had his internal cabinet report leaked. Put simply it shows that defence spending would be cut in Scotland [contrary to all public statements by the SNP],
that pension and public sector costs would rise to unsustainable levels, and that The Bank of England would have an input on to Scottish finances [again contrary to what the SNP are arguing publicly]
The Telegraph has a good report on the leaked report which once again shows that Independence simply would make Scotland a lot poorer.
