The Prescription Election?
You don't pay prescription charges in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, nor if you are either over 60 (as more and more people are) or too ill to work (or, indeed, simply not working anyway). How many prescriptions does that leave? And even fewer after yesterday. Is Gordon planning on announcing wholesale abolition this time next year, in time for a Spring 2010 Election? I wouldn't put it, or anything else, past him.
