Sturgeon’s Socialism Steals Millions from Hard-Working Scots, for No Return

Damning news from north of the border as analysis by the Scottish Fiscal Commission reveals that Sturgeon’s higher tax rates have taken £535 million extra out of the pockets of hard-working Scots, yet have yielded just £6 million extra in spending power – a figure set to fall in future years despite additional tax rises.
