All in all this article about plans to provide free eye tests in Scotland got me thinking. Why is it that in Scotland they do things so much better?
Tuition fees were abolished in Scotland.
Free personal care was introduced for the elderly.
The system for buying and selling houses is so much simpler.
Now they are introducing free eye tests and have a plan to introduce free dental checks next year.
Yes I know the answer about devolved power and the Lib Dems being part of the administration and the sort of policies we have been pushing but I guess I just wish we could get some common sense into English politics and start delivering some improvements in the quality of life for people down south.
If it wasn't for the fact that my family and employment are all in the south I would seriously think about moving to Scotland where quality of life seems to be a real political issue.
