Wendy Alexander MSP - Keep the money coming England

Councillor Tony Sharp, of the Waendel Journal has posted an excellent article on his blog entitled: Scots Labour leader tells English to pay up and shut up. Tony highlights some of the imbalance in the way our taxes are distributed across the UK. Please pop over the Waendel Journal it is well worth a visit.

I left the following comment on the post:

How much wailing and screaming would we hear if the boot was on the other foot?. We'd be hearing cries off "England’s poor cousins" and "Second class citizens." I still cannot believe that MPs of a different country's parliament can vote in ours. No other country in the world would put up with this. A recent survey showed that cancer survival rates in Wales are now higher than those in England. The reason is that the NHS in Wales is better funded than in England, and Welsh patients have access to drugs denied to the English.

What the hell is going on?

What the hell is going on? You tell me.

It's David Cameron who has singularly failed to stand up for the people of England on this issue by not presenting an equitable alternative vision for the future.

English votes for English laws is glib and won't do it. It has to be an English Parliament with equality for all the countries of the Union.

He has the opportunity of reaping an electoral harvest by being a champion for English democracy and an equal Union but is singularly failing to do this and so flailing politically.

Shame Wendy is as far removed from reality as yourself and desperately trying to cover up the huge subsidy being sent south to keep England ticking over.
