Ministers fighting for a 45p unit alcohol tax!
No bloody wonder the whole Country is in a mess, with some of these suggestions http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-11155653
Admittedly there is a drink problem in areas, like the north west, but the suggestions don't help at all the people or the NHS.
I read on the news yesterday almost 700,000 drink related cases ended up in hospital visits, the most in North West and least down South.
Though what is more obvious is not the danger of more drinkers but the quality of Ministers at stake when there is a population of 60 million plus though i doubt anyone is really interested, as the quality of life on (income)is only enough for one beer and a couple of roll ups in the North West!
What are we looking at top income of managers around 25 to 35k before tax, pay the rent and everyone is broke
Holiday in Blackpool perhaps nothing changed since Queen Victoria for most people, pubs closing, social life in ruins and no work..... Service active countries are non profitable, as services are outsourced to cheaper countries
Did you know the UK had to give a Taiwanese Company £80 million so they would open a factory in Scotland, very sad state of affairs to read an article with such pathetic suggestions, wouldn't mind if it all went to the NHS but it doesn't.
I would be happy to pay for good services, but like an old age pensioner said, once you are on pension you are down graded on the NHS as a non priority patient. When i had heart attack in UK, i was discharged after 5 days without any tests other than those i had before the attack, showing no signs of trouble.
Then told it would take 3 months before they call me in for an angiogram yeah right!
Though the service i got in hospital by all foreign doctors and nurses was better than what i paid for here in Singapore with a private room.
