    Exactly
    https://fullfact.org/economy/money-national-insurance-contributions/
    "Even though there’s a specific pot of money for NI funds to flow into and out of, it’s not helpful—as the Insitute for Fiscal Studies has argued in the past— to think of this as a ring-fenced sum that’s separate from the rest of the government’s money.

    That’s because when the fund runs low (after, say, years of deficits in a row), the Treasury steps in and injects new money into the fund. And as mentioned above, the surpluses in the fund are also invested in the national debt.

    That means, in practice, some money flows into the fund that doesn’t come from NI contributions and some money flows out that doesn’t go to pensions or contributory benefits.

    In other words, whatever the amount of NI contributions the government raises in a given year, it always finds a way to pay the pensions and benefits it has to."
    Only fools would think that it's not part of one big pot that has money moving backwards and forwards to use on other things other than benefits and pension.

    I tell you what mate for a bin dipping drug fueled Nigel you don't half spout some shìte about a subject you know nothing about, Scotland. There is no "once in generation" pish in the Edinburgh agreement although I dare say you had no idea what you were talking about when you wrote "signed on the dotted line"

    Since the last referendum there have been monumental changes in the UK Union. Changes that the majority of Scots did not want to happen. The Holyrood elections will be fought by pro indy parties as a mandate for indyref2 and if they get a majority then Indyref2 will happen and Boris won't stop it.

    As for Northern Ireland, any vote they have would be a very closely run thing. A united Ireland is closer now than it's ever been and that is down to your pals in Westminster. The Conservative and UNIONIST party have did more do kill the union than anything the SNP or the Shinners have ever done.

    You didn't read my post, did you? Or you tried to, and failed, which is even more tragic.

    She is her eyes and ears on the ground. And quasi spokesperson. It was never by chance she got the gig at Queens.

    The last referendum was 2014 .


    Serious question is 8 years long enough ?

    If Scotland vote to leave this time in 2022 would that mean the next referendum would be 2030.
    Or will this one be the decider and everyone will have to suck it up and move on ?

    He can't be black. I've not seen him dealing in drugs or stabbing people.

    It's pretty clear that the person writing the scripts on Joe's teleprompter is running the White House.
    He's incapable of speaking for himself.

    In the press conferences the questions are all scripted too and he's told who to go to and has the answers written down in front of him with photos of each "journalist".

    And he still manages to **** it up

    Do you not think there has been a pretty massive change in circumstances since 2014 in this country. Enough to warrant another referendum?

    In 2014 the Scottish people were told that the only way they could remain in the EU was to vote No. How did that work out for them. Whether you like it or not most Scots didn't mind being part of the EU.

    So I'd say yes, 8 years in these circumstances is plenty.

    Yes you have it in your head that because I posted a link to a mainstream English newspaper that means I'm part of some sinister online community of "far right" extremists on 4 cham WhatsApp or Telegram, an echo chamber of white supremacy and hate.

    Because we all know the only media sources allowed are BBC and The Guardian which isn't in any way an echo chamber of lefty Pro remain intersectionality Marxist propaganda at all.

    You have zero self awareness .


    Back to the "you didn't read it " weirdness
