The Transient Transylvanian Tattie-pickers Doowop Duo at the Fringe
Mysteriously, Alex Cole-Hamilton (SCOLIBDEM) asked the Scottish Government, on Monday, what proof of residency in Scotland is required when applying for the free bus pass offered to ‘older people.’ Who is he calling ‘old?’ I got the bus pass at 60 but took till 63 to get professorised!
The answer was:
Michael Matheson: Anyone applying for a National Entitlement Card (NEC) is required to provide original documentation to confirm their residency in Scotland and verify their personal details. This includes name, address, date of birth and proof of entitlement. A list of the acceptable proofs to confirm residency entitlement can be found on the NEC website – https://www.entitlementcard.org.uk/how-get-your-nec
What are they up to? The Lib Dems want free-movement, don’t they? Are they hoping to expose SNP ‘hypocrisy’ when 60-year-old transient Transylvanian tattie-pickers in Ayrshire have to pay bus fares?
