Scottish tax payers WILL be penalised by Westminster
Donald Dewar and the loony New Labour party have said that
the Barnett formula, the sleazy method by which the Scots get back less
tax from London than they pay in tax is calculated, MAY be reviewed
after 1999 when the Scottish parliament sits.
On December 9th 1997 Westminster vowed it would review AND CUT payments
to Scotland, how convenient they forget this and let the
forgetful Scottish Labour voter forget also.
The Scottish parliament should vote to implement a TOTALLY independent tax
collecting PAYE scheme as soon as it sits. Tax should be collected and stay
in the Scottish exchequer, its our work, our time , our money.
Does London think it is going to dictate through its recalculated Barnett formula how much of our money we get back?
This is a ridiculous notion.
