Scottish government to move to replace council tax

Fascinating! The BBC reports:

The Scottish government is to press ahead with plans to replace council tax with an income-based alternative.

Good Lord. Sounds a familiar policy.


  1. If the SNP aren't actually going to let councils vary the level, it isn't a local income tax at all, just a (possibly hypothecated) national one. :-/
