Because they are not governed by a right wing administration whose sole purpose in life appears to be the destitution of the poor and the enhancement of the rich.

PSR. Are you quoting Theodore Parker now?

I'm still confused what the advantage of living in England I have over those living in Scotland, Ireland or Wales. Other than the fact England is a nicer place to live...

Some people would argue that Scotland is being propped up by English taxes, which presumably means that they can afford luxuries that England arguably can't. The Scots argue that this is not the case.

    Hi, first question last.  Park Hill Flats was one of the first of its type to be developed in England in the early 1960s.  The back to back terraced pre 1919 houses it replaced were highly unpopular.  The vision of Streets in the Sky had not been sullied by bad mangement, poor (in some cases) construction and thermal insulation, and anti-social behaviour.  As a result the flats were very popular when they first opened, and even up until the late 1980s many of the original tenants were still living there.  Later developments of similar flats in Sheffield failed to ...
