Meaning what exactly? Capitalism develops across Britain as unevenly as it
does anywhere else, there are regions of England that have lower levels of
employment, income than regions in Scotland and vice versa. There are
parts of London right next to the city of London with as extreme poverty
as anywhere in Scotland. The SRSM get around this problem by arguing that
there are no 'Scottish' ruling classes at all, anyone who not working in
Scotland must be English.
