Land Value Tax

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 bricks?

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.

Clearly, Brian’s still deep in that funk he fell into after our mutual acquaintance told him about what my inheritance is going to look like. He’s got the green-eyed monster, big time. Poor Old Brian.

Folk like Brian measure a person’s worth in pounds, shillings, and pence. It’s a very bleak worldview and I genuinely pity him.

Not much to boast about these days. Many quite grotty parts of the world have an area of expensive housing, fully occupied.

True enough.
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 mean that capitalists eschew inheritance of property? That's nice, I suppose they donate it all then?

Does make one wonder how I'm a millionaire after being a life long socialist. Who inherited very little from my life long Tory parents. ;-)

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.

That's very sad. I'm a millionaire as are most of my neighbours. Must be horrid living in the sticks.

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.

ROTFL
Do you think those who want to tear down ‘the system’ know or care about the difference?
They just want any 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.

Yep, someone has to do what needs to be done.

But no one is actually stupid enough to hand it to you.

Then do the decent thing and hang yourself.
