Plan to tax Scottish motorists is ILLEGAL!

There are plans afoot to tax Scottish drivers just for entering Edinburgh or Glasgow to raise money for more transport needs.

This is idea is spawned from London and will be implemented at Londons demand. It is ILLEGAL under the act of Union.

The act explicitly prohibits ANY form on unequal taxation being levied against Scots unless it is levied at the same time in England!

And why do they think taxing people will stop them HAVING to drive to work? Public transport in Scotland is ina state of decline after years of neglect under Westminsters benign dictatorship.
