    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.
    Daily Mail readers are living in a perpetual hell, expecting their homes to be overrun at any minute by hoodie wearing, skunk smoking, muslim, transgender, asylum seekers.

    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.

    Fags are already expensive enough. 7.50 for a pack of 20 Marlboro lights is outrageous. All kinds of people smoke, but it still is a fundamentally working class activity - and many unemployed struggle to pay for their smoking habits as it is (it's an addiction and as important as food to many people)

    Cigarettes are an easy target. Why not put them up to 15 a packet as people will still buy them to the extent of not eating as it is an addiction ? Rather than the tedious bashing of smokers now I would rather smoking is made illegal. The trouble is , despite all the health nazi's being completely obssessed with this subject , they will never be banned as the government makes too much money from smokers.

    But the money for water bills goes to private water companies NOT the treasury. Vacant bedrooms would be very hard to monitor - what if a bedroom was vacant 50% of the time and how do you monitor that ? What about very large houses with fewer bedrooms - they would avoid some tax. What about retired couples that have vacant bedrooms because their children have left home - should they effectively have to sell up because of the vacant bedroom tax ? What about people like me that have their children to stay every other weekend due to divorce - I can hardly rent out their bedrooms can I ? Would people like me have to pay this vacant bedroom tax.

    At least with a swimming pool tax it's easy - do you have one or not ? If you don't like or can't afford the tax then fill it in.
