Budget cuts - your views online
They should cancel the budget and help the people of Scotland with the cost of living. They don't need to worry with their big wages and what they claim on expenses.
Whatever the SNP do you can be sure they will make a right mess of it. An elderly family member had to go to A&E on Monday. He was told there would be a six-hour wait at Kirkcaldy hospital. Scotland already runs a huge defecit despite being the highest taxed part of the UK. Only the SNP can fail like that. Public services will just get worse.
There has never been a better time for Scotland to start taking care of her full economy independently. Time for independence and complete governmental reformation.
Nicola Sturgeon said there would have to be cuts to pay for the large pay rises the unions negotiated. We need independence now.
These SNP cuts are to offset wage rises in the public sector. That’s despite them reporting an underspend and surplus of many hundreds of millions of pounds every year since 2007. Last year alone they failed to spend £650 millions of our own money!
A woman with an allergy to the cold which means she needs to maintain a constant temperature in her home says the £2500 energy bill cap is not enough
This is a real illness as I have it. It also goes along with autoimmune conditions. Can be quite painful,
My daughters has Raynaud’s syndrome. Even in summer her lower legs and feet are purple and freezing cold. In winter she gets chilblains and her hands and feet feel like they're frost-bitten.
This is a real thing! I know a few people who, due to medical problems, react to cold weather badly. I have rheumatoid arthritis and sometimes my fingers have turned blue, but it’s not extreme.
I wonder why she was photographed in a short sleeved T-shirt? The rule in our house has always been first put on more clothes, and if still cold, turn up the heating.
I am allergic to the cold air as well. I used to womder why I was always covered in small, red blotches that would turn itchy on my neck my arms whenever it was cold. It’s called ‘cold urticaria’.

I feel I've got the same problem. Constantly freezing. Especially hands and feet. No laughing matter. Mine is so bad, I even feel cold in the summer.

My son is allergic to hot and cold. He has medication and clothes that help with both issues. As long as the temperature is controlled this can be made to work.
How about wearing a really good, warm woollen sweater?
Cheaper temporarily to live in a warm country and to work online.
How can anyone be "allergic" to temperature? I feel the cold terribly myself, but I don't pretend that I'm allergic to low temperature.
I have fibromyalgia. Yeah, it's really bad in winter but I havea hot blanket and thick PJs and socks to help keep me warm and a hot water bottle.
My daughter has the same condition. She spends all the entire autumn, winter and spring on antiihistamines. She too has to keep her house warm or her skin has a reaction to the cold which makes life very irritating.
So go and live in Spain . . . Oh, wait a minute, you can’t because of Brexit.
Roger Federer has announced his retirement from tennis at the age of 41.
Must definitely the greatest of all time – a true gentleman.
