Hypocrisy: The SNP And Tax Avoidance

Regular as a clockwork, we hear the SNP and their followers shouting about tax avoidance and tax evasion.

But what about their own followers, supporters, members, etc?

Lets just scratch the surface on this with regard to the SNP and their supporters.

And of course, who could forget Eck Salmond himself, setting up Chronicles of Deer, so he could avoid tax on his media appearances, and profits he thought he’d get from his failed book?

Its fairly obvious that the SNP are not whiter than white, as they like people to think. But this brings us to something Sturgeon said in the Chamber at Holyrood.

She said that nobody involved in Tax Avoidance would get any Scottish public money.

Did she mean “nobody involved in Tax Avoidance would get any Scottish public money unless they support the SNP and Separation”?

I’ll leave you to make your own minds up on that one.
