Have you showered yourself in money this rainy morning? Did you have a refreshing bath in freshly subsidized dosh this a.m.? Simon Heffer thinks you did you ungrateful dolts:
“Over the next 12 months, it will be distressingly hard to avoid Scottish voices on TV and radio droning on about whether or not Scotland should vote in a referendum to leave the United Kingdom next year.
To make matters worse, it is increasingly a debate from which the English, who as taxpayers send a hefty subsidy to Scotland each year to keep that country afloat, are willfully excluded.
In a true democracy we, too, would be allowed our say, with a vote of our own next September, since there are two of us in this particular marriage.
Since the mid-Nineties I have been convinced that England and Scotland would benefit from a divorce, or at least from a trial separation. Many Scots don’t much like the English and appear ungrateful for everything that England does for them in showering them with money.”
Other examples of such delights are welcome.
