Well with a little gerrymandering to exclude the diaspora and letting everyone over 16 have a vote it may well get over the line. There again I'll wager Boris says 'no thanks' and it doesn't get off the starting line.

 

Not sure how the numbers will stack up in the heat of battle mind; when anyone that brokers any alternative view to the sunny uplands of a tartan caliphate they are immediately rounded upon, insulted and accused of being a traitor. Pollsters may find yet again that folks haud their wheest and lie low under those conditions.

 

All that aside, given such overwhelming demand why doesn't she just set a date? 🙂 

Nail on the head about people( no voters) being quiet about their voting intentions. I think this may happen even more at the next Indy ref as the campaign will be even more ferocious than the last one ( from both sides i may add)

On the evidence of this and similar threads, I'd suggest you're both talking wee-wee...

Maybes aye, maybes no. Not sure that a very small subset of the JKB community proves anything, save that I do observe that it's the same 20 or so folk that post and not hundreds. Either way if it is granted that'll be the only number that counts for anything 🙂

I see they have announced Councils free to increase council tax and that tax rates not changing.

With inflation charging ahead, looks like those who are hard working and employed can look forward to being worse off.

Meanwhile we are squandering a couple of billion on 'green' activities, even when we can't afford them.

Oh, and cancel your Christmas party because, well because it's Scotland and chief mammy ****ing hates people being happy.

Presume your ignoring main point where abandoned council tax freeze and refusing to raise tax borders means hard working folk will be worse off as inflation takes off.

You honestly think PHS would make statement without running it past their govt controllers who they are accountable to?

They're just preparing ground for NS tomorrow.

I thought they had pledged to abolish the council tax a while back?

Now they have given them carte blanche to fleece us to paint rainbows everywhere and cone off roads for ignored cycle lanes on roads that resemble dirt track's in the back of beyond never mind a capital city.

With inflation racing ahead,  energy and fuel prices soaring and the effects of Brexit yet to be properly felt, council tax will be well down the list of the fiscal worries of hard working folk.

What account is that from anyway? Can’t see it’s cropped out…

Ill hold my water before I lose my shit over it and see what I’m paying extra.  Things need to be paid for in your local areas I suppose.

Unfortunately James because you don’t pay for these things at the point of use the masses actually think prescriptions and bus trips are actually free.

The claim to support no prescription charges is that it saves money due to the admin etc involved costing an extortionate amount of money.

 

No idea if this still stacks up,  however,  as someone on a package of drugs that I will be taking til I drop I'm glad these are free at point of issue.

Not at all. I do believe in certain things to make a better society should be paid for. The free bus passes for the youth isn’t a bad idea either. We have too many cars and encouraging them to use public transport is a good thing imo. 
Free prescriptions are also in wales and NI do daftys over there rage about it too? The unionists daftys I mean? Raging that their people are getting some benefits in life? Some health care and some free transport to maybe get a job etc?

I’d be amazed if we were saving money making prescriptions free to all. I can’t even think we’re the admin would be saved to such an extent. 
 

Regarding your own circumstances simpler one time cost for multi prescriptions should help with that rather than paying for each prescription. The majority of people really don’t need free prescriptions imo.

I wouldn’t be against stopping the free prescriptions in all honesty. 
I think the most commonly prescribed drugs are paracetamol and aspirin which is a total nonsense. 
People that need assistance though that are unwell youd hope they can get it free.

A friend of my mum asked her if she wants a couple of thousand paracetamol recently, she gets them free with her script 🤦‍♂️ 

 

I think free prescriptions are a great thing, but it needs looked at. Maybe they could send the counter lassie round to B&M to grab the ones that cost 29p instead of the few quid it costs the nhs

There is definitely an argument for our NI contributions covering prescription charges. You go to hospital you walk out with your prescribed drugs for nowt. 
 

Paracetamol, brufen and aspirin should never be on a prescription really, they cost pennies in the supermarket ffs.

Some people don't have pennies, but I agree providing them at much higher cost is ridiculous.

Yes I can’t believe paracetamol are on presciption ! I take them daily but would never get them on a script . You can get 3 x 18 packets for £1 at Poundland .

Agree with the comments that paracetamol ibuprofen etc shouldn't be on a prescription.

I have asked a couple of times if a cream or tablet is available over the counter as opposed to prescription and have turned down a prescription on a couple of occasions and bought the item myself.

Why are the SNP "foot soldiers" so against clootie dumplings that they feel the need to threaten a Perthshire baker who makes them with violence?
