UK Middle-class home owners would pay higher taxes...

  1. In a speech at his party's annual conference, Mr Cable called for the "tax base" to be shifted on to "property and land". He said it was far harder for people to dodge property taxes than income tax. The wealthy increasingly are moving their affairs offshore to avoid the new 50p rate on earnings.

    Mr Cable expressed concern over the "extreme concentration of wealth" among those who own property. His comments will alarm middle-class home owners who have seen council tax bills double over the past decade.

    Moving offshore ? Ay, ay, ay. Higher property and land taxes ? What would Churchill say ?

  2. Good Lord, just what the UK middle class needs, some liberal agenda political asshole to pickpocket their wallets and help stall economic growth while the rich just move their ownership holdings overseas.

    I wonder if he's cousin of Obama...
