The Outrageously Under-Occupied Tax

with one comment

Well, I’ve had the email warning me that Labour intends to tax the homes of the rich- who the Tories seem to think is you and I.

So what do I think?

Well, Ed, don’t do away with the Bedroom Tax. Keep it, but change the rules; it only applies to private homes and only applies to those with more than two- maybe three spare rooms.

And an additional tax on spare homes too!

That will exempt the poor in social housing. It will exempt most ordinary homeowners. It will hit the rich with multiple homes and multiple spare rooms!

And let’s change the name; stop calling it the Spare Room Subsidy; stop calling it the Bedroom Tax; call it the Outrageously Under-Occupied Tax.
