    Increase the top level of tax, end the charity status of Private schools, introduce a land tax, increase tax relief on pensions and research & development projects, cut the rate of VAT.

    None of which Gideon will do, of course.

      I know, it's just that you were changing it for houses just under £1m.
      Yeah, ******* foreigners. What have they ever done for us.
      They have money, we don't. Thats it. Nothing to £ 250k as we need a stimulus for ftb's and fts's. 1% from 3% now for £ 250k-£ 500k to get the middle band going, phasing to 3% as below

      to £ 250k - nil
      £ 250k-£ 500k - 1% for first £ 250k and then 3% for amount over
      £ 500k - £ 1m - 3% for first £ 500k and then 4% for amount over
      Over £ 1m - 5%

      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.
      Metering in mandatory for those of us with pools maybe a tax on jealousy for you?

      Agreed, why tax on swimming pools? Just sounds like arbitrary bitterness.

      Appoint a "Tax Czar" who's sole remit is to pursue tax avoiders and get them to pay what they should.
      Introduce a bonus tax of 50% on all bonuses that exceed half the salary.
      Remove child benefit from all households earning over £50k
      Increase tobacco duty by £2.50 for a packet of 20.
      Make the Scots pay for their prescriptions. And universities.
      Remove universal free bus travel for the over 60s if they own a car.

      I would encourage employers to provide pensions for all their employees. I would agree that there is a discussion to be had about variations in tax rates but employers should not be allowed to have excuses for massive pension pots for Directors and a pittance, if anything at all, for most employees.

      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.
      Have to agree with this. The application of stamp duty seems to have such a negative affect and a disincentive. How many people have bought a house for £249k and spent about £30k on fixtures and fittings?

      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)
      If you are unemployed then perhaps you should be cutting back anyway.


      I think the tax on empty properties is a good incentive for owners to do something with them as would a tax on some companies like Tesco who have massive land banks, many of which are done as a preventative measure to stop the opposition building there.

      The idea of a tax czar is good but will never happen as the people it attacks are more likely to be those that fund Osbourne and his ilk.

      Swimming pool tax is just dumb.

      We all know that the tories will sell any tax breaks on the rich as an attempt to stimulate the economy and encourate entreprenure rather than what it is in that it is just putting money back into the pockets of their supporters. At the other end of the scale, the poor will be hit harder especially the public sector. The government are spouting on about removing national pay scales which in itself is not necessarily bad however my wife has already lost a cost of living allowance from BSUH which was only introduced to try and balance out some of the inequalities created by national pay scales. So not just a pay freeze but also a reduction of over 1% of your salary.

      We now have the ludicrous assertion that during the Olympics all the large stores will open for as long as they like to boost the economy. Where will that leave the small traders. At the end of the day, people will not spend more, they will just change where they spend it. There will be winners, the big companies, and losers.
