The Steamie: Why Humza Yousaf has been confronted with another SNP revolt
Six SNP MSPs chose to rebel against the Scottish Government over plans to ban fishing in 10 per cent of Scottish waters.
In the latest episode of weekly podcast The Steamie, The Scotsman’s political team debate just how the rebellion unfolded and the contentious areas within the HPMA policy.
Political editor Alistair Grant and deputy political editor Conor Matchett also discuss Mr Yousaf’s new anti-poverty drive.
Under the move, Mr Yousaf has suggested higher earners in Scotland are set to be hit by increased taxes. The SNP leader specifically highlighted the “good” suggestions made by the Scottish Trade Unions Congress, which include a new tax band of 44 per cent between £75,000 and £125,140 of earnings.
