Labour speech highlights their own tax lies

Labours chancellor and once-a-Scot, Gordon Brown, said of the SNP policy to keep the income tax base rate at 23% :
"Tax revenues would then fall. Less money would be available for public services," he said. "The result would be to leave many people who work hard day in and day out still struggling to make ends meet while they pay more in taxes."

And this from the party that has raised taxes all round in the last budget.

Will Labour voters (ie sheep) see through this?
