Scotsman wants English to work at Britishness

The Cep reports:

Gordon Brown has had what seems like a great idea. Under his leadership students that volunteer for community work will have their tuition fees paid for by the Government. This, believes Brown, will encourage "strong modern patriotism" and "an agreed British national purpose".

The glaring problem with this is that it will not apply to Brown's constituents in Scotland and likely as not it won't apply to the Welsh either.

Why should English students have to volunteer to have what the Scots get for free? And in the name of building an agreed British national purpose!

Precisely. See my comments.
