MPs debate Thatcher legacy: 'Scotland will never forgive poll tax'

The leader of the SNP at Westminster Angus Robertson said Scotland "would never forget, and never forgive" the poll tax being imposed on the Scots before the rest of the UK.

He was speaking at a specially convened session of Parliament, following the death of Baroness Thatcher on Monday at the age of 87.

David Cameron opened the Commons debate by paying tribute to the former prime minister as an "extraordinary leader and an extraordinary woman.''
