If you don't ask you don't get....
I don't I'd much rather the people of Northern Ireland start making more of a contribution to the country and less of moaning rattling of the begging bowl. I don't want my country to continue like that. Its about time we starting stumping up more to support our own country and not running to the British government and UK taxpayers of Scotland, Wales and England and demanding we get more than our fair share.
To be fair BelfastUniGuy, and I'm not being ignorant, our local MLAs have tried hard to make NI a place where we our less reliant on money from the UK taxpayer. Gordon Brown refuses to reduce our Corporate Tax. I hope there is another way.
I think it was one of the MLAs who said that Brown has no right to whinge about how much money we get when he makes it difficult for us to attract investment.
