This chapter addresses the ‘blunt’ question: ‘why should taxpayers in the southern half of England pay for everyone else's needs?’ Devolution changes the content of UK citizenship. It also argues that some quite good indicators are available of how the Scots view these relationships and express their expectations of multi-level government. The tensions which can exist between statewide commonality and territorial variation of policy standards, as exemplified in particular in the relationship of Quebec to Anglophone Canada, are investigated. It then considers how citizens as voters plot their ways through multi-level government by studying how far and why voters behave differently at territorial as compared to statewide elections. Moreover, the findings to Scottish-English relationships in the UK are applied, emphasizing first on territorial policy variation and ‘multi-level voting’, then on the importance of territorial financial arrangements in expressing ideas about the statewide solidarity of citizens in all territories.
