Sturgeon is sending back yet another power to the UK Government

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon is sending back yet another power to the UK Government, exposing the utter incompetence and hypocrisy of the SNP.

It’s bad enough that she handed back social security powers earlier this year, then suddenly decided she wanted nothing to do with control over air taxes recently.

Now we learn the SNP government can’t cope with the VAT assignment it so furiously demanded previously.

Another example of this incompetence on tax policy is the separatist's hare brained car park tax that will slam teachers and police officers.

Proposals published recently failed to exempt vital public servants from the regressive £500 a year tax on workers.

The SNP’s car park tax will hit the lowest paid the hardest just for driving to work. Nicola Sturgeon needs to abandon it now.

All these tax issues and more are the hallmark of a grievance-driven, incompetent administration whose time has long been up.
