Mhairi Black: No wonder Labour’s tax plan is so badly thought out | Comment | The National

I KNOW there are always calls to leave the referendum in the past and to talk about it as little as possible. However, I disagree as I think it is important to hold the Unionists and British nationalists to account for the misleading promises they made during that referendum. You will remember when Labour politicians stood side by side with their Tory compatriots spreading fears about Scotland facing tax rises if we became independent, yet even though Scotland voted No we now have Labour committing itself to imposing an additional tax on Scots if they are elected into government. The purpose of this tax is to offset and make up for the loss to the Scottish budget from Tory cuts – Tory cuts that we would not have to endure if we were an independent nation with an elected independent parliament. Therefore, Labour’s proposed tax increase is effectively a Union tax and I will refer to it as such from now on. It is the extra price they want to force us to pay for their No vote.

    Good article. At the mention of “Cunning Plan,” all I could think of was Baldrick and I have been unable to shift that image all morning.
