It’s about time we benefited from the Human Rights Act

VERITY LUSH: I can’t get my head around the general fakeness today

Have your say

I’m not sure whether to be impressed or annoyed by the tolerant attitude we English continue to display towards the Scottish government. Funding their expensive little Ruritanian administration is one thing – but allowing them to rub our noses in it is quite another.

Scottish youngsters accepted into the prestigious Edinburgh University can study free. But if you happen to come from south of the border (or from Wales and Northern Ireland) you will be required to pay £9,000 a year.

Considering we’re all supposed to be part of the UK, that is racial discrimination pure and simple.

Perhaps the English can benefit for once from the risible Human Rights Act instead of being continually exploited by it.
