London taxpayers shouldn’t pay for gamble

Sir, “Questions raised over David Cameron’s Scotland concessions” (September 11), referring to Westminster MPs being unhappy about the extra incentives now being offered to the Scottish electorate to stay within the UK, hit the button.

Mr Cameron ruled out devo-max at the beginning of the process: now we seem to be offering devo-whatever you might want! This will of course (more or less) be paid for by London taxpayers. Nobody has asked us if we want to pay. As a London taxpayer, my vote is that we should not. Scotland should decide on its own merits whether it wants to stand alone or not.
