Yeah you could have petrol at Â£0.50 a litre but what level you going to set income tax less than the 22% the UK will have?.
plus the rest and the 9% national insurance that is supposed to pay for our pensions that are non existent unless you happen to be employed by the civil service.
with the resources we have income tax could be set at a zero rate and corporation tax would also be a lot lower than the UK.
fuel duty would be zero or very close to it this would make landing to the Shetland catch very attractive to the Scotish fleet and the Norskies as they would fill their fuel tanks while landing in Shetland, so contrary to some beliefs we would not be giving our fuel away but making a great deal of money from the fish landed at our factories.
Any ferry company looking to run routes to and from Shetland would find it a lot cheaper so welcome back Smyril, and Norshukon would be up and running by now alongside Smyril.
There is absolutely nothing I can see that means we would be better off under UK/Scots rule, paying taxes to keep their arses out of debt.
