Default The Welsh and the Scots should be thanking the English and licking our boots

The English have very bravely taken the full force of the cuts so our Welsh and Scottish cousins can carry on spending to their hearts content. If a Welsh student goes to an English university he should be very greatful to the English people there who pay 9k a year while he only has to pay 3k a year. The Scots should be extremely greatful we pay so they don't have to.

Anyone who says the English don't subsidise the Welsh and Scots is a left-wing denialist. Taffs and Jocks pay the same tax as their English counterparts and actually pay less council tax, so where does all their extra money come from to pay for their social policies?

The budget the Welsh and Scots receive from the UK government is a far bigger percentage than their tax money pays for. That's why they can afford to spend, spend, spend.

So... are you jealous of the Welsh and Scots, or are you just angry with the stupid English who allow it?

I do not, in any way, condone such behavior.

If it's that bad why don't everyone move to Llandudno and Stranraer?

The Welsh are paying for that by taxing tighty-whiteys:

Maybe they are paying for % of IQ and that's why the Welsh only pay a small fee and Scots none and English students have to pay the full fee

OIl and Gas from Scotland mainly, ask the thousands of mancs/scousers/geordies, if they could have made the same money not working offshore in scottish waters.
