Graduate tax in Scotland would be illegal
The poll tax was illegal when it was introduced into Scotland before the
rest of the so called "UK'. Any graduate tax would also be illegal under
the terms of the Treaty of Union 1707.
It would also restrict the ability of graduates to leave Scotland or England
and move abroad to work. How would they pay this grievous tax if they
were working in the USA? There is no reciprocal agreement. The tax would
lead to virtual imprisonment of graduates in the "UK and infringe their baisc human
right to freedom of choice.
