Another illegal tax from London on the Scots
London plans to introduce tolls on some Scottish motorways
as a pilot scheme.. the same trick the Tories used when they
enforced the poll tax illegally on Scotland and not on the
This is illegal. This is a tax on driving and under the 1707 treaty of Union, CANNOT legally be introduced into Scotland on a 'lets see what happens basis'
The SNP leader Alex Salmond said : "We will fiercely oppose road tolling and the pilot scheme will become a
central issue in the elections for a Scottish parliament. It is impossible to argue for this on
environmental terms. It's not green its brown - Gordon Brown wanting money."
