Education, education, education

This is what happens when a Scottish Chancellor of the Exchequer, backed by the votes of Scottish MPs, gets his hands on English money.The Scotsman reports that “state education spending in Scotland is now £1,000 per pupil higher than it is south of the Border” (hat tip An Englishman’s Castle).

And those cosseted Scottish kids who then go on to study at a Scottish university have their fees paid for by the Student Awards Agency for Scotland. English students pay for the privilege of studying in their own country (£3,000 per year from September 2006), although the Chancellor has generously suggested they could do community service to get those fees down.

Come on England, wake the fuck up!
