Since February’s Budget, there has been discussion about income tax in Scotland and public spending.
Oddly, the debate was sparked by adverts – rather good ones we might add! – on the Tube promoting Scotland as a place to live.
Some – such as London MP Greg Hands – have responded by arguing that moving to Scotland would mean paying higher taxes.
This has been countered by others who argue that whilst (some) taxes may be higher, the quid-pro-quo for paying more tax is higher public spending and benefits such as free University tuition, more generous childcare, free personal care, free prescriptions etc.
So who is right?
