There was I, all set to wind down from the keyboard, when this inspirational news descends from politicshome:
The Independent says that Nick Clegg plans a new tax on homes worth over £1m in order to fund raising the basic starting-point for income tax.
It’s a wealth tax! A redistribution of taxation burden on to static capital accumulations and away from economically productive activity! Has anyone told Jock?
Woohoo! If the party adopts this, I’ll even overlook all that airbrushing nonsense…
