The Times Are Changing.

It would appear to Mr Smith that the landscape of Scottish politics is shifting.

Last week we had Conservative Leader Annabel Goldie MSP call for cuts in Council Tax, and over the weekend we had a call from Liberal Democrat Leader Tavish Scott MSP for the Scottish Parliament to use its powers to cut two pence off the basic rate of income tax in Scotland to alleviate some of the pressure from increasing household bills.

Suddenly, Scotland is being offered tax cuts by politicians who haven't offered that choice before. Mr Smith finds it all very strange. But the sad thing is that Mr Smith doesn't think they are actually being serious.
