SNP's illogical song

Alison Thewliss (Letters, 9 March) uses the word "illogical". What an appropriate word to describe the policy of the SNP towards corporation tax. It proposes to reduce this tax by a third, thus giving Scottish businesses such a boost that eventually so much more profit is made that the revenue from this tax actually increases.

Can anyone name a chancellor who has actually reduced a tax to increase revenue or, presumably, increased a tax to reduce revenue? A few other words come to mind that may apply to this policy such as "ill-considered", "ill-founded", "illusioned", etc.
