Labour washes it hands of National Insurance safety net control
Labour is to hand over the running of National Insurance (US Social security)
payments to the treasury, taking it away from the DSS (dept of social security)
The problem now arises what about Scottish tax payers contributions? It belongs
to the Scots and not to London. With the DSS in Scotland robbed of its main
reason for existence should the faceless wonders in Whitehall be trusted
with our NI contributions, pensions and retirement?
You can see them 'investing' it for us in Londons stock market, outside
Edinburghs control and ruining the lives of millions.
