Some in northern counties envy the Scottish benefits – but would they last?

Men from the Ministry/Scots Referendum
As we near the fateful day, it perhaps isn’t surprising that there are people south of the border who are envious of the benefits which people in Scotland enjoy free:

  • Prescription charges
  • Elderly Care
  • University Tuition Fees
  • Bus Passes from age 60
  • Bedroom Tax
  • Hospital parking charges
  • Bridge Toll Fees

Listening to some of the televised debates one could take an implication that an independent Scotland would be able to make more things free. In reality we think it might be wise to keep hold of this list, and see how many remain after a few years of independence, and the facing of reality alone. I’d put a better chance on them remaining if Scotland decides to remain part of the Union.
