Derek Mackay uses new powers to make Scotland highest taxed part of UK

THE SNP has been accused of “setting a dangerous precedent” which could
damage the economy after pushing ahead with plans to make Scotland
the highest taxed part of the UK.
Setting out his budget for 2017-18, Finance Secretary Derek Mackay confirmed
middle class workers would pay an average of £314 more per head next year
than if they were living south of the border.
The threshold for the 40p rate of income tax will rise by inflation in
Scotland to
£43,430 next year, but to £45,000 in the rest of the UK under Tory plans to
ease taxes on higher earners.

IOW - Tories buy votes in RoUK by failing to collect enough taxes to
pay for future expenditure.
