Re: Southern rip-off

I think people should be allowed to choose where they want to live, I am happy to live in Buckinghamshire, 30 odd miles out from London.
I moved to take up a job some 40 years ago.
All these calls of moving Government departments out of London ignore the fact that you are uprooting all of the civil servants ( and their families ) from the South East, or is the plan simply to chuck them out of their jobs? In order that you can give the jobs to people who already live in the area you propose to move your job too?
Social engineering at its very worst.
I don't recall calls to moving industry from the Black Country when it was at its zenith but now apparently it is acceptable because the wheel has turned.
Incidentally the thread seems to suggest a Southern rip off, I suggest you just do some research to see how how money raised from rateable value gets redistributed to the north.
By the way how come students in England pay tuition fees, we pay prescription charges but Scots and Welsh don't?
What a rip off?

Re: Southern rip-off

It's not about where people chose to live it's that the communal money isn't shared out in anything like an even, equal way. Why should us Northerners get less per head out of the kitty than someone living in the South?

These are devolved from Westminster control.

Re: Southern rip-off

Communal money? Where does this get generated? Suddenly it's communal to fund your lifestyle choice.
Housing costs dearer in the South East, cost of living dearer, can I please have more pension to equalise this unfair state of affairs?

Re: Southern rip-off

Yalimart, you pay higher income tax than set by HMRC countrywide? Please explain, I never realised there were different rates of income tax dependent on where you lived in the UK.

Scotland has its own tax setting powers, I was registering today as I live here permanently, it wont hardly bother me as I work from home part time.
