    Heard they were considering increasing the charge to £8.00, so what a relief that its only going up to £7.10p

        When I cross the border into (especially) Mid-Wales I always feeling an enormous sense of coming home.

        My father was Welsh, but I only lived in Wales for about 8 months.

          look forward to repetatively telling people that their prescription charge has gone up by 25p, and trying to explain why.

          Also look forward to all the comments about immigrants etc... being to blame for everything thats wrong in this country. (normally start with something like "no offence to you but..." since im not white, but i look forward with the bull people come out with)

          my parents immigrated to this country thats the reason for their incompetence and impotence and thats the reason they are unskilled, untrained, inept and useless.

          and LMAO to the white season on BBC, feel sorry for the white middle class males but to the white working class people, sort your self out, no ones gona hand it out on the plate for you. (except the measly JSA or income support)

              Wallace and Glendower must be laughing in their graves. At last they have discomfited their traditional enemy.

              Alex Salmond is a very astute man who is trying to get true independence for Scotland by forcing England to split off this troublesome hibernia.

                        I thought it was in the REPUBLIC OF IRELAND that pharmacies were striking, i.e. Eire, not Northern Ireland?

                            It seemed to be accepted with hardly a murmur as well.

                            Looking forward to see which MPs have benefitted from the "John Lewis" list in there expenses. There might be some claims in there for prescription charges.
