Scotland Leads the Way - Again!

So Scotland will abolish Council Tax, says Alex Salmond, and a good move by the SNP.
This highly unpopular and unjust tax has to go the way of the Poll Tax instituted by Margaret Thatcher (which was exceedingly unpopular at the time). A local income tax makes far more sense and is not unlike the State Tax used in the United States. However, it remains to be seen whether each council will be free to set its own rate of tax. Another first for Alex Salmond. Scotland will also follow Wales by abolishing most hospital parking fees. You know it makes sense!
