Can anyone tell me definitively what the tax was that is the subject of the chorus in this song? I don't have this anymore - a victim of a daughters migration to Uni.

Davy wrote it about Thatcher's poll tax which was introduced in Scotland a year earlier than over the border. It resulted in a Tory wipe out at the next election (not the song) from which they have never recovered. TF
