@mod: If you're living in DC proper and not just the DC area, you've got to be realllllly well off. Most of the people that work in DC actually live in the Baltimore area (Maryland) or somewhere in Northern Virginia. But if you work in DC and actually live in DC, you're almost certainly really well-off. It's like Switzerland, Monaco, and Luxembourg in that you've got to already be rich in order to get to live there.

Powers of the Scottish Parliament

Devolved and reserved powers
Scotland has devolved powers within the UK system of government, as set out in the Scotland Act (2001). This means that the country is not independent but it does have control over some of its affairs through its elected parliament.

Devolved powers
The affairs over which the Scottish Parliament has control are called devolved powers, and they include:

health
education and training
local government
law, including most aspects of criminal and civil law, the prosecution system and the courts
social work
housing
tourism and economic development
some aspects of transport, including the Scottish road network, bus policy, and ports and harbours
planning and the environment
agriculture, forestry and fishing
sport and the arts
miscellaneous matters, such as compiling statistics and keeping public records


Reserved powers
The UK Parliament retains control over a whole range of national affairs. These are called reserved powers, and they include:

constitutional matters
UK defence and national security
UK foreign policy
immigration and nationality
UK economic and monetary policy (other than Scotland's tax-varying power)
energy: electricity, coal, gas and nuclear power
employment legislation
social security (the DWP - Department for Work and Pensions)
some aspects of transport, including railways, safety and regulation
regulation of certain professions such as medicine and dentistry
others, such as data protection, broadcasting, gambling and the National Lottery


- http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/higher/modern/uk_gov_politics/gov_sco/revision/1/

AKA UK federal vs "country"-level powers

Compare that to US federal vs. state powers:

http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0877699.html

And from the White House:

Under the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, all powers not granted to the federal government are reserved for the states and the people.


MRW our states have more power than your English-subject colonies you've chosen to call countries. They don't even fully trust you with your own transport systems.

To be fair, Connecticut is a strange little state.

It has some of the best schools, nicest towns, and highest GDP out of any U.S State, but also notorious for some of America's worst cities (Hartford)

These all misleading figures. I always thought highly of knyte for making good forum post, but this is kinda disappointing.

Here some figures that show a very different view with a trustful source:

Very misleading considering the USA as a whole on GDP per capita sits below Norway, Luxembourg and Switzerland. Very poorly put together this thread. Blatant shite brought straight from the wealthy, patriotic yanks desperate to spread propaganda.

@that figure knyte posted, seriously?

so, 'Murica with it's 300 million citizens and debated gun laws are about 10 times safer than a scandivanian country with 5 million people?

seems legit to me.

oh and about Turkey and media bias? Sure, we got a lot of media control nowadays here alright; but trust me, we are *still* better off here than there.

I'm not an Erdogan supporter, FYI.

Still doesn't change some facts here; at least we got used to our dic- I mean our glorious leader, your election candidates are all jokes with almost all of them have a high chance to ruin your country irreversibly. You are destroying yourselves over big time, I hope you won't try to drag us or the whole Europe with you.

Shots fired.

On a side note, I literally died out of laughter after seeing that stuff on TV haha

EDIT: @Vengence I can assure you it's actually lower than half; the only reason this guy still wins the election is because our opposition parties suck.
