No money trees

Have your say

At long last it has been bluntly said. If the SNP want anti-austerity in Scotland they should “stop talking and start acting on the new powers devolved to them” (your report, 28 May ).

Nicola Sturgeon knows that, sadly, money trees do not exist, so her party can only deliver the additional services she promises her supporters if she raises taxes and increases borrowing in Scotland.

She now has the levers to do this.

I cannot help wondering, however, if the Scottish people, (even those she actually represents) will continue to support her party if taxes are increased and if, as a result of increased borrowing, our children and grandchildren are left to pay off additional debt.
