Sick and tired of Labours London bred lying?
The Scottish parliament, if it is to built at all, should not pay VAT
in costs to London. It should also ave access to low interest rate, long
term financing like Gilts issues and should NOT be financed by raping
Scotlands budget for years to come.
HERE COMES THE BIG LIE AGAIN
Labour Finance Minister Jack McConnell said
"It was vitally important to recognise
that Scotland got back significantly more from the
UK Exchequer than we paid in. There was a
structural deficit of around £4bn and to suggest
otherwise was "deceitful and dishonest".
SICK OF THIS LIE? The SNP need to expose this lie once and for all,
Scots with brains have knows for years now based on Londons
own figures that Scottish oil, gas, income tax, tax on our electronics
industry and financial sector (bigger than most European countries)
have been screwed from us. This has to stop to make the ordinary man in
the Scottish street realise that as a free man, with no London -
will be richer, happier and independent.
