I have admitted a number of times that Economics is a Mystery to me and I am therefore for Joseph Ogle and Daria Luchinskaya over at Click on Wales for unpick the Budget announcement and what it means for Wales
So we look to be loosing out evrn if initially the additional money for the Wales budget appeared to amount to £200 million
Contrast this with the plan for a “full decant” of the Palace of Westminster has been backed by the influential public accounts committee, with MPs and peers moving out for around six years while the work is carried out at an estimated cost of £3.5bn to £3.9bn.
“cannot consciously support expenditure of that amount on any building, particularly when Westminster is imposing such needless and harsh austerity on everyone else”.
“I have long been calling for another solution to this problem – to relocate from Westminster permanently. One of the great failings of the British state is that it has concentrated all its efforts on one city.
“Addressing the individual and geographical wealth inequalities of the British state should be the most important priority for politicians, not least because addressing those injustices would in itself be an economic driver. Supporting complete relocation would be a bold statement of intent for Westminster’s political class to show that they are serious about equalising wealth and prosperity.”
: “It would be wholly inappropriate, and frankly insulting for Westminster politicians to spend so much money on their own facilities when the people we serve are being forced to bear such pain.”
There is of course another option to Scottish and Welsh Voters and that it is to leave the Union and concentrate on our own Parliament as Independent Nations.
The Palace of Westminster is a symbol of a decaying Union and it is time to abandon it as Scotland looks likely to abandon the Union.

Indeed the Bill for the Westminster Repairs and the news that Buckingham Palace to undergo 'essential' £370m refurbishment, could be a factor in the referendum as Scots will be expected to contribute.
It also an insult to millions of English people who do not even seem to have the option of success
