England v Scotland

 by phil , Sat Mar 05, 2011 8:03 pm

What is going wrong in this country, something must be when Scotland a part of the UK that is heavily subsidised by English tax payers can announce that they intend to abolish prescription charges while the coalition government here announce an increase that will raise our prescriptions up to £7.40. per item.


As well as getting free prescriptions, Scottish people receive free eye tests (compared to an English charge of around £19) and free ‘personal care’ in old age, while English pensioners have to pay full residential care costs if they own assets of more than £23,000.


To top it all, Scottish students pay no tuition fees, even if they attend a university in England. Students born south of the border face paying up to £9,000 a year.


I think I will move back to Scotland.
