The one hundred and sixty sixth weekly "No shit, Sherlock" award

This week's winner is Eric Pickles for this insight:
'I recognise that my own party would probably be, its election prospects would be, better off if Scotland left'

"No shit, Sherlock"

I for one am fed-up with the way that England, no let's be honest, the way that mostly London and the South East of England support the Scots via the Barnett Formula. In return what do we get? Scots voting on English legislation when the same does not apply in reverse - the West Lothian Question, Scots taking English money whilst moaning about being 'ruled by the English' - since the last three Prime Ministers have been either Scottish, Scottish educated or have Scottish roots I'll take that claim with more than a pinch of salt.

London and the south east is under determined attack from the EU and the USA.
How much longer do you think that it can hold out?
We are in this together,. At the moment London is a den of thieves.
We need to rebuild a new industrial, fishing, agricultural base with an English, sustainable, population. We need out of Nato, out of the EU and out of the UK.
