How will the new tax collection quango Revenue Scotland cope with a sudden drastic change in building tax announced by John Swinney in what must be the most rapid U-turn ever performed at Holyrood?
Revenue Scotland was struggling to set up computer systems for 1 April this year and had already admitted that it may have to resort to a manual pen and paper system to get started.
But this was before the added burden of Scottish property tax changes to bring Scotland more into line with England had to be conceded by John Sweeney.
Oh dear, how very taxing.
