Scots businesses punished by high local taxes
The new tax rates that businesses will have to pay will almost
double in most cases. This will help kill off Scottish business and will
look bad for the Scottish parliament - leading the public to assume
that it (Holyrood) and NOT Westminster is to blame.
Of course this is London driven. Nothing better than a long dole queue to
keep people in line is there Mr Blair? Keep them dependent on hand outs and
they are too frightened to tell you to *!* off.
