The hidden costs of Brexit, which have already made Scotland's economy over 6% worse off than England and the worst affected across the entire voluntary political union called the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, ironicly with NI a close 2nd worst off. We both voted very strongly to remain in the EU by a lot more than 1.9% England!

The problems with the Scottish economy are down to Nicola Sturgeon and the people that voted for her.

Nothing to do with Brexit. Stop making up fake news. It's the Project Fear hysteria that lost Remainers the vote in the first place. Haven't you learned anything in 4.5 years?

The problem is that all direct taxation and the hidden stealth taxes such as VAT no longer go to council care. Quango's, and private agency and compay works hoover all the public tax away to offshore bank tax evasion and money laundering accounts hence the need for Brexit as the EU clamps down on both hard. Enjoy your Brexit inflation comeing to a supermarket near you very soon.

I'm not sure you could describe VAT as a 'hidden stealth tax' - it's not hidden (and therefore not stealthy) and you'll find it itemised on the receipt for just about everything you buy that attracts it.
