Knowledge gap

She may be angling to become our next Prime Minister but that does not mean that Harriet Harman understands the Barnett formula, or does she?

She told the House of Commons yesterday that the Chancellor of the Exchequer's plans for £5 billion of efficiency savings across Whitehall will not lead to the devolved administrations losing out.

This could mean one of two things. Either the cuts are all planned for non-devolved functions such as defence and the Home Office or else the Deputy Prime Minister does not understand the basis on which Wales and Scotland are funded?

Answers on a postcard please.
combining this and the Labour euro candidate blog this is the second time you have ripped off a plaid story without passing on credit. very poor form peter!
Barnett Formula, ummm

since it is a formula it will have an equal sign in it somewhere (just the one mind) and addition signs, also multiplication....

Perhaps HH should try similtanious equations first, then work up to Qualdratic equations before anything as complicated as the Barnett Formula.

Personally, I think the Barnett Formula is an urban myth, bit like the drugged traveller waking up in an ice bath with his kidneys removed.
"or else the Deputy Prime Minister"

Could it be that it's in fact you that has a knowledge gap...a gap in your knowledge of the set-up of the Government of the UK?...Harriet Harman is not and never has been the "Deputy Prime Minister".
