English Inequity - What's Your Prescription ?

I see that the Northern Irish government has announced its intention to abolish prescription charges.

This follows the decisions of the Welsh Assembly and the Scottish Parliament to do the same in their respective countries.

For the same thing to happen in England, - ie. to have prescription charges paid for mainly by English taxpayers - we need the support of the British government, at the head of which we have a Scottish Prime Minister and a Scottish Chancellor.

It's a strange old world, eh ?
I so, so want us to leave the Union...

I don't want to leave the union, but I do want to address the root of the problem.

We need an English Parliament and the Barnett formula needs scrapping. It's no wonder Scotland can abolish prescription charges. It's my money helping pay for it.
