Counting the cost.

SADLY Scottish Labour's attempts to highlight the failings of the SNP on Scotland's freebies are too late.

Look at the costs of these policies. Free prescriptions mean job cuts in the health service and a PS54million bill for methadone.

Council tax freeze equates to thousands of job losses and cuts in public services.

My solution is simple. Bring back prescription charges and council tax should go up by the inflation rate every year.

If we do go down the road of independence we will become the new Africa. Without the rest of Great Britain we will have nothing.
