SNP pledge to abolish council tax in Scotland

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Scottish Socialist Republican flagThe SNP have pledged to abolish the council tax in Scotland in two years.

The plan is to freeze council tax next year and replace it in 2010 with a local income tax.  The SNP is working with the Illiberal Democrats who have had local income tax as one of their policies for a long time.

According to the SNP, Scots with low and middle incomes will be about £300 per year better off.  Those with higher incomes will pay much more than they currently do to pay for the redistribution of wealth.

    I think local income tax is a good idea. Probably much better than the current system of council tax.

    Should be interesting to see if that great Scottish Patriot Sean Connery puts his money where his mouth is if this gets implemented.
