Do the right thing ...

Today is the closing date for the consultation on plans for the so-called 'Local Income Tax' ... and although I'm not expecting the Scottish Government to publish the actual consultation submissions before next Thursday (for obvious reasons!), the Aberdeen Press & Journal is running a prominent story today that basically sums up what many key stakeholders think.

Its well worth a quick read.

These plans, as I posted about a few days ago, are to my mind unworkable and should simply be dropped in the Autumn and replaced with a sensible alternative ...

... it would be madness to press ahead with the proposals as they currently stand.
