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.
The 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.
