For instance, Scottish MP's sit on, and can vote on issues in both the Scottish Assembly and Parliament. English MP's cannot sit or vote on issues in the Scottish Assembly.
As a result, there are many benefits being given to people North of the border which the rest of us do not get, but which are paid for from the same pot of tax money we all contribute to.
