Taxing Times

It seems that the Scottish Libs are looking for a distinctive policy to set them apart from the other parties at the next election.

The indication, according to the press, is that they will propose to cut income tax by 2p in the pound using the fiscal levers at Holyrood.

Interesting stuff, but what did their Treasury spokesman have to say about such pledges when the Tories were talking about tax cuts?

Over to you Vince.

“It’s obvious that the Conservative Party believe they can’t win the next General Election as they continue to make promises with money they don’t have.

“Fairer taxation is a desirable aim but it is an empty promise unless clear costings of policies are published..."

So, when will Nicol tell us which public services he is going to cut?
