Should Corbyn set it at a rate designed merely to redistribute wealth or
should a more progressive level of taxation be applied to the robber baron
class’ hoardings, coupled with the introduction of rent control
legislation, in order to burst the massively over-inflated housing bubble
and collapse house prices back to nearer the true value of a pile of
He’d do better to reform IHT.
Parents whose offspring have shown they are prepared to work etc, and have
actually established themselves- bought a property etc should be subject 0
IHT when passing to children. Even the, effective, £1m or so currently in
place isn’t really high enough, it is easy to exceed that. (Fortunately,
there are legal ways to avoid IHT even if you have more the £1m) £1m per
child would be more reasonable.
Conversely, if the off spring have obviously been sitting around waiting
for another hand out, moaning about how tough life is etc, tax it at 100%
and give it to the NHS.
No true socialist should complain at that. Reward the hard working, the
first case, help the masses and don’t reward the lazy in the second case.
Of course, those who fall into the second group- remember you need to have
bought a property- will scream it is unfair.
Stephen Thomas Cole CB/M0TEY is quite concerned about other people's
money - he once bragged that he lives only five minutes walk from
millionaires. It’s a very bleak worldview and we genuinely pity him.
Many in the expensive areas worked hard to ensure they could afford to
live in one of the expensive areas. Socialists expect it to be handed to
them on a plate or sit back hoping to inherit ;-)
You seem to envy him Jim, you always mention him. A bit like that
callsign you missed out on.
I'm no issue with those who inherit, good luck to them. It is hypocrites
I've a problem with- Socialists who hold their hand out expecting
someone to fill it with money.

Well done, there are some out there that still appreciate that others
can strive as hard and as is nearly always the case, a lot harder to
live hand to mouth.
It nausiates me to see people being hero worshipped for making
millions for effectively moving peoples cash about or gambling, while
the poor bloke making things and supporting the whole lot is ignored.
Everyone wants an easy life.
Is there some reason why it should not be an aim?
I certainly want an easy life, sadly it does not yet appear to be
around the corner.
"Tearing down the system" sounds a trifle difficult.
