Scottish OAPs (seniors) get rough deal from London

The Scottish parliament endorsed a policy that will care for all our Old Age Pensioners (Seniors) and ALL parties agreed it was a good way in which to spend budget. However, as London only gives a portion of the taxes it takes from Scotland BACK to Scotland a 20m cash shortfall will arise.

London is not prepared to help. It's prepared to take our tax and rule our country, take our seas and pollute the minds of our children with British Citizenship lessons, but will not help our old folk.

Why then do we make complete idiots of ourselves time and again and vote Labour, which means vote for continued London control over Scottish affairs.
