    I do try and stay clued up on politics and finance and I know most of what's going on in the country, but this has been confusing me.

    How do Wales and Scotland have so many different benefits? Free prescriptions, free elderly health care in Scotland, and obviously, the university fees!

    I know their respective governments subsidise their fees, but if the funding for each of Wales and Scotland comes from Englands government then how come England doesn't also have these benefits?

    England must surely have something in the place of these benefits, but I can't figure out what they are.

    Basically I'm asking, how do Wales and Scotland have the additional funds to subsidise the university fees, but England doesn't? If anyone can answer I would appreciate it greatly.
