A Perth & Kinross councillor has been accused of heresy:
Deputy administration leader Councillor Willie Wilson responded by saying he was amazed that Mr Stewart “just about advocated the return of the poll tax.”So some people evaded the poll tax and "went off the electoral roll". Good: why should they enjoy representation without taxation? The sooner most local government functions are privatised the better and then we can all pay our way - fairly.
He added, “The poll tax was an absolute disaster and that was an incredible statement to make. There were riots in the streets, evasion, and people went off the electoral roll.
