State of the Union podcast

The Union between England and Scotland was 300 years old last Tuesday - but how much longer can it last in the face of the growing demands for independence north of the border and growing resentment south of it at the lack of an equivalent English voice?

Plenty of subject-matter there for my latest Week in Politics podcast which can now be heard HERE

Paul, my resentment is not so much with a Scottish Parliament per-se but the benefits that accrue to the Scots as a result of it.

Free prescriptions, no University top-up fees, the availability of cancer drugs withheld from the English, free care for the elderly, no congestion charge proposals north of the border amongst others whilst Scottish MPs can sit at Westminster and raise taxes that hit those in South East England especially hard to pay for such largesse!
