SNP ‘could raise Scottish income tax to plug hole in spending plans’
Institute for Fiscal Studies warns that soaring spending on benefits ‘will reduce amount available for public service spending’
In so many ways. Firstly, they’re offering to pay for the spending in Scotland from the taxation of the Scots. That’s better than the taxation of the English to pay for spending in Scotland, obviously. Not so good for the Scots paying the taxes but, well, you know, vote and you shall reap the rewards.
But it gets even better. They’re simply handing out too much of the money to scrotes. Which is excellent. Because given the disasters that happen when they actually try to do anything just giving it away is a grand improvement.
