Interesting comment by former MSP & Land Reform Campaigner Andy Wightman

It’s mad to tinker with tax rates when the tax base has not been revalued for 32 years. Imagine hiking income tax rates based in what you earned in 1991. This is bad, bad policy & results in CT still being a regressive tax after proposed changes.

Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen nineteen and six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pounds ought and six, result misery. The blossom is blighted, the leaf is withered, the god of day goes down upon the dreary scene, and—and in short you are for ever floored.
