I think petrol should be free along with gas and electric.

With the current state of the country's finances, what would you want the Gov't to drop?
Schools and education? Welfare? Roads? Hospitals and Doctors?

You can't have everything that you might want, but you can have one thing...

Definitely free chocolate on prescription! It is essential to my well being.

As for free wi-fi - maybe if the OP doesn't have it where he lives then he needs to move. Norwich has free wi-fi access but I think it is limited n how long you can use it for at a time.

Being serious - considering how relatively cheap internet access is I can't see there's a need for providing it free to everyone.

How come as an over 60, I can get free prescriptions but I can't have free dental treatment? My dental disasters are costing me a fortune.

Dunno , there's so many unfair things going down these days. I can't afford to go to the dentist now , he's probably taken me off his list - had a broken tooth the other week - just ignored it , I know I'll end up the worse off for it - I bet these dentist's are all millioaires now they've gone private.

I find private just as cheap as NHS actually. I pay monthly but you can 'pay as you go' and their charges were very little more - for some things actually less last time I checked - than the NHS prices for IMO better service. What's more if I have a problem they'll fit me in that day - or at the latest the next. I've been going to the same dental practice for about 30 years and I now travel 70 miles to get there because of a house move but I wouldn't change to one nearer because they're good. My advice would be find a private dentist - it may save you money in the long run.

Private doesn't always mean more expensive.

Thanks for explaining it all - that's a long way to travel to see a dentist.

It is - but if you combine it with a visit to friends in the same area it makes it worthwhile :-)

Brian says:
Yes, I can see it would :-)

I have this splendid image of you chatting to your friends with drool running down your chin as the anaesthetic slowly wears off. Wibble, dribble. LOL.

Dave.

Not quite like that - I go and see friends after the dentist. Though I suppose if you've been going to the same practice and it has some of the same staff they could be regarded as friends after all this time!
