I do agree with mansion tax as I am sick of this government slyly upping and upping costs that affect the poor and ordinary people living on the
minimum wage in this country. I know the wealthy have been buying up the bankrupt properties that many hard working people have been swindled out for
various reasons and many probably have huge portfolios of property. I don't know if they pay a mansion tax on the full amount of all the properties
they own but I think this should be brought into the equation also if it is not a part of the mansion tax.
Its cameron who hates the idea of mansion taxes for his rich buddies and of course we have queenie and the royals, whose main home for official
business could be tax exempt but their other mansions surely should be liable for mansion tax. Charlie earns about 17 million from his duchy
businesses and should therefore not blur the royal expenses with his duchy expenses but apparently one irate gentleman told the tv that he is a past
master at this which is defrauding the tax man of much needed revenue for our country to function. With his wealth it amazes me he thinks he might be
sort of money.
We also have people like rothschild and his castles and a number of others whose houses would being in some welcome revenue. It would also make it
fairer for people from abroad who invest in property in this country and price people living here out of homes. The difference in the london property
market and the rest of the UK bearing in mind how much london boroughs are subsidised by council tax collected from outside london should certainly
be made to pay mansion tax over a certain amount because no where else is there such a disparity between house prices and it might also bring down and
control the property market.
What still gets me are the people who still pay no tax in this country such as ceos who live here and own property here yet their money is in the
virgin islands - also where queenie keeps a few bank accounts I read about, when some time ago she bailed out her nearly invisible youngest son on one
of his financial blunders.
I have no problem with mansion tax especially as I saw they were going to hit pensioners again with cuts as cameron and his smug side kick osborne
have messed up yet again on this country's finances. Certainly all for the greater good of telling everyone how well the conservatives have done in
pulling this country out of negative growth ! Most families here will tell you they are seeing negative growth in their disposable income.
