In Insider today:
‘A Deloitte survey has revealed nearly three in four Scots back increase in taxes to pay for higher public spending. The annual study on public services and the challenges they face found 73 per cent supported paying more tax to boost public spending, a larger proportion of the population than in Wales (70 per cent), England (69 per cent) and Northern Ireland (61 per cent). Entitled The State of the State 2018-19, the Deloitte report also found 85 per cent of Scots were concerned about the future provision of public services – 15 per cent more than the UK average.’
Returning to a well-worn groove here, I find steadily increasing evidence that the people living in Scotland are predominantly different enough, in terms of core values such as fairness, equality and compassion, to justify thinking of running their own show. Here are some earlier reports offering evidence to reinforce this notion:
BBC Scotland lie and distort to try again to spread violent crime crisis into Scotland despite it having only 3.5% of the gangs for 8% of the population, falling levels of violent crime and because of falling levels of fear of crime?
