Okay, we’ll make this quick.
– Why do £73 and £4.50 both appear to actually be £4? Why would you illustrate two radically different sums of money – the difference being the whole point of the exercise – by using identical sums of money? Are you morons?
– That’s not even the top and bottom 20%. You’d need 20 coins in the stack for four of them to be 20%, but you’ve got 17. What you’ve illustrated there are the top and bottom 23.529%. Did you run out of cash or something?
– If you’re talking about the “top 20%” of families, then presumably that’s a little over a million people in Scotland. That’s an odd definition of “the richest few”.
– “The SNP’s £125m tax giveaway?” And what is it that YOU plan to do with the money instead? Oh yeah, that’s right – you’re going to give it away too. Except you’re not going to give ANY of it to the poorest people, because the poorest people can’t save up thousands of pounds for mortgage deposits.
– Rather than give high-earning families £73 a year, you want to give them £6000 in free cash towards buying a house. At £73pa that’s over 82 YEARS of annual holidays, more than most people will take in their lifetime. Your plan is far more generous to the wealthy and far less generous to the poor than the SNP’s.
– APD is a flat-rate tax. The minimum per person is £13, so if we’re talking about a typical family of four that’d be at least £52 for a single flight. So to get a £4.50 figure our bottom 20% of families must only be having a holiday once every 12 years. Have you let Richard Baker have a go on the calculator again?
Otherwise, top-grade work as ever. Good luck counting your votes.
