Scottish devolution- the cost

A report by the Government Expenditures and Revenues in Scotland (http://www.scotlandoffice.gov.uk/scotlandoffice/files/Time%20Series%20Analysis%20of%20Government%20Expenditures%20and%20Revenues%20in%20Scotland.pdf) shows that since devolution, Scotland has cost the UK just under £76 billion. Taking into account oil and gas revenues this reduces to a deficit of £23.5 billion. Scotland's public finances exhibit a structural fiscal deficit, having not been in surplus since 1980-81.

Why then are the Scots allowed to enjoy free prescriptions and free University education?
