SNP point out more taxes on Scots courtesy of Labour
"Jacks Tax" the SNP call it. A combination of cuts in council support, rises in council tax,
and in Scottish business rates means the Scots are effectively being taxed
even more under Labour than even the English!!
the Unified Business Rate is to be 10% higher in Scotland than in England, putting
all Scottish business at a disadvantage. Of course Labour councils could refuse to make
the rates different, but these same Labour councils pushed the poll tax down your throat
Because they do as Nu_Labour and Westminster tells them. They represent no one except themselves.
