wow! i had no idea...

Just announced in Leeds last week 12 to park at the Leeds General
Infirmary, or St James's.

Most I've been charged was 18.00 at Southampton General.

St Georges, Tooting wanted to charge me 8.00 for 2 mins over 4 hours.

Customers queueing tp pay at the pay station in Russel's Hall
(Wolverhampton) complaining like buggery, cos it's gone up 500% in one
year, at having to pay 2.50 per half day to visit sick relatives in
hospital. It's about half the Old Age Pension, just in hospital car
parking.

Free at the point of use Eh?

DG

Have you been following me round the country?

I have worked in Russell's Hall, Dudley,
LGI Leeds,
St George's, Tooting and been to study sessions at Southampton General...

I'm sure it was different last time I looked - glad I didn't

U pay about 4.50 for 500ml of isopropyl at my local chemist. I
thought the high-ish price was mainly for duty.

Am I being way over-charged?

????? 47.65GBP for 5L is not 1 pound/litre, or I am gong mad.....

The message <k7vcb218s3ri1oj62qas0pgq9j83h6sfs0@4ax.com>
from Derek ^ <usenet@miniac.demon.co.uk> contains these words:

Better to fly to Poland or Hungary.

The patients don't queue round the block in their thousands (overnight
even) for nothing you know.

Though round here in Telford there were places at NHS dentists going
begging a couple of months ago. We had no trouble when we moved here,
and spaces are still available.

Despite this, people in Telford were complaining to the papers about the
lack of NHS dentists - apparently they were only ringing the first few
on the list and stopping before getting to those with spaces, claming
they were all full.

The patients don't queue round the block in their thousands (overnight
even) for nothing you know. That "Find an NHS Dentist" site tells
porkies. It includes dentists who have no NHS availability but who
maintain a "waiting list" . There is absolutely nothing to prevent an
NHS dentist who has an NHS patient who pops his clogs one day filling
his timeslot with a private patient who can pay the requisite
175/hour for routine treatment, if he can find one..

Even the dental emergency clinics at NHS Hospitals are mostly fiction
and in any event can only make appointments in the evening when
commercial dentists are closed. Presumably for contractual reasons.

Mustn't deny the dentists their gold plated crusts.

I can get a bottle of 50% isopropyl alcohol here in the UK from a
dicount store for about 0.70 UK Pounds (approx 1 US dollar). I
use it for general household cleaning.

The bottle is 473 ml (1 US pint). The 50% is by volume.

Alcohol is so heavily taxed in the UK and this is particularly
cheap. I suspect that the price of 0.70 UKP many not cover the
cost of the UK tax due on it.

Does anyone know how much UK tax should be paid on 230 ml of
isopropyl alcohol?

Only the dreaded VAT. No duty on IPA - 'cos no one drinks it. Had
it been ethanol.....
