Tax Rates in England Decided By Other Countries

The problem of the unfair and undemocratic way England has its taxes rates decided partly by other countries within the UK, but not the other way around, keeps haunting the election campaign. William Hague reportedly summed it up as “We can’t have a situation in the future when Scotland is going to set its own income tax rates and its own air passenger duty rates and that Scottish MPs could then come to England and vote for higher income taxes or air passenger duty rates.” As I see it fairness and democracy in tax legislation has to go both ways or the whole tax system is discredited.
