      Taxbreaks for the rich.

      Oh.

      That's what we're getting.

      Lower the tax thresholds and cancel the fuel surcharge.

      Tax breaks for taking on more servants, and a moat allowance.

      Stamp Duty phasing.

      None to £ 250000.
      1% £ 250000 - £ 500000
      3% over £ 500000 but only pro rata, ie £ 250000 still at 1%
      5% over £ 1 000 000 - on the whole amount

      To get the lower bands and middle bands moving and the property market out of stagnation. The country needs a healthy property market whether we like it or not.

      Tax credits for employing a butler
      I surrender all control
      To the desire that consumes me whole
      Leads me by the hand to infinity
      Lies in wait at the heart of me - the Albion of course !

      dont you mean raise the thresholds? i do expect to see a large increase of the basic rate allowance as its both Liberal and Tory policy, a massive vote winner and will help growth. i wouldnt expect anything more than no increase in fuel duty. interesting piece i read recently said last autumn was the first time revenues from fuel dropped, so its reached the limit of its elasticity. ciggies to up massivly. drink a nominal amount.

      expect a cut on corporation tax and state backing for small/medium businesses to raise bonds and rule changes on what pensions can invest in, allowing them to buy wider range of bonds. he has £10b surplus on the deficit reduction program so expect a few rabbits pulled. announcement when 50p tax rate will end to appease backbenchers, but it'll stay for now to wrong foot Labour. its a silly political football, but like the Welsh yesturday, Osborne will just keep hold of it to run the clock down and prevent the opposition scoring.

      Cigarettes up 70p a packet.
      Scrap Road Fund License and add it to the cost to fuel - it would mean those that use pay.
      Hold fuel tax itself.
      Agree with US's Stamp Duty idea but would add an extra band of 10% for properties of £10m+.
      Second home tax of £5k per year.
      Derelict building tax of 10% of value per year. If the owners can't be traced then local authority can automatically take possession after a year.
      Tax on aviation fuel.
      Swimming pool tax ( for private ones only ) of £1k a year.
      Increase the personal allowance.

      I think a super-rich tax hike is the most important thing. There are so many millionaires using loopholes so they effectively pay a lower tax rate than regular working people which is a joke.

      Rather than a swimming pool tax or the like (which they would already be paying for with water bills), I would suggest a tax rate based on vacant bedrooms. This would encourage lodging for smaller homes, or simply increased tax for the rich.
