After rubbishing the Conservatives proposals on heritage tax and green tax on flights just weeks ago,he today announces the introduction of such taxes,no doubt Darling`s party are congratulating on his original thought

Are you really surprised?

I thought when I heard the Tories going on about it that it was a good idea. If Labour ignored what I considered to be a good idea just because an opposition party came out with it first I would consider them to be very foolish.

You're completely wrong, he just 'listened to what the country wanted'.

A note of caution, has he really raised any level at which IHT is paid?? It has always been possible to use the £350,000 times two i.e £600,000 ??????
with easy to do avoidances schemes.
It just saves a 'small' amount of paperwork/time.

Another note of caution, we have yet to see the small print on any proposals.

There's always a catch.

but this is an overtly party-political topic, and as such it must be locked. Such subjects are inevitably contentious.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
