Mansion Tax To Pay For 1,000 Nurses In Scotland

This is the front page headline in The Times. It is subtitled.

Labour targets southern England to woo north.

These headlines are based on a policy statement by Jim Murphy, the Scottish Labour Leader. The Times also says he didn’t clear it with Ed Miliband.

My house would probably not be worth enough to pay a mansion tax, although knowing politicians, they’d probably change the rules to make most houses in London and the South East pay the tax.

But I thought that the NHS in Scotland was devolved.

One thing I find, is that if I talk about the NHS to people in England and Scotland, those in places like London, Liverpool and East Anglia, are much more satisfied with prerformance than those north of the border.
