As a sickly myopic, should I choose to live in Scotland?


The author before treatment for colour-blindness

Coincidently, I’ve just been fitted with new ‘intermediate’ specs so I can write this blog without squinting. My varifocals were no use for that bit in the middle, between reading and driving. What about trifocals? Anyhow, the test was free.

I used to take some medication, that was free too. I wonder, if that’s still the case? This answer to a parliamentary question on Monday 24th March, 2019, should help:

What, it’s all free? My mum takes umpteen pills. That’s free too?

It’s not fair, she doesn’t pay any tax at all whereas, I, with my hard-earned teacher’s pension have to pay an EXTRA £20 every year.  Free prescriptions, bus pass, free university tuition for my four bairns, free care for my mum, and the top NHS, but they want £20 extra income tax for it? I don’t know.

    Since, according to Nomedia and the Labour Party all ‘nationalists’ are really Nazis, it would be unwise to be sick, myopic or disabled in any way.

    It’s not a bad deal, is it John? Strange that some people don’t seem to see a good thing when it’s staring them in the face….
