Student tax on Scots illegal on two counts

The Act of Union 1707 specifically prohibits the raising of taxes in Scotland unless the same tax is introduced into England. Blair: try telling 30 million sheep English voters their kids will be taxed to death as well as those Scots you are punishing and see what happens to Nu-Labour voting prospects!

The European Union also says this tax would be illegal unless London imposed it ON ALL EU students studying in Scottish universities - again, BLAIR - take a walk, this isn't going to happen.

The Liberals are cowards and your promises on more opportunity for higher education has been misleading.

Get your corrupt lackies out of Scotland, get your hands of our tax, get your hands of OUR oil and gas and peddle your nonsense to the feeble South of the border.
