Notes: From the Traditional Tune Archive, this tune was “composed by Scottish fiddler Sandy Mathers, a member of a variety of bands who also plays different instruments. It was titled in response to the Margaret Thatcher-era Poll Tax, introduced into Scotland in 1989 and England and Wales a year later, and was a flat-rate per capita Community Charge, a fixed amount levied by local authorities. It was met with widespread and vociferous popular protests and was replaced by John Major in 1992 with a property tax.”
