Why are we English always the poor relations when it comes to public services? Today the BBC are telling us that Hospitals in Wales will be bringing in free parking from the 1st of April. This follows an announcement by the Scottish health secretary that a maximum of £3 will be charged in their hospital car parks. Will this happen in England? will it hell, not as long as Gordon Brown is in charge.
This is a chart showing the parking fees at my local hospital in Portsmouth. This is nothing more than a sickness tax. What really disgusts me is the fact that Doctors and Nurses have to pay for the privilege of parking at work.
