Surely abolishing the tax subsidy for unoccupied properties decreases the administration needed, by simplifying the system?
I can understand the resentment many renters must feel, talking up/creating yet more beaurocracy is really clutching at straws.
And surely changing the subsidy to a surcharge could likewise be made to result in efficiency savings, given that
1) There will already be a most comprehensive list of self-certified subsidy claimants, and
2) The number of people who stand to benefit from lying is decreased from the (occupied) majority to the (unoccupied) minority?
Yeah, I found the way he pseudo-intellectually contrived not to repeatedly and grotesquely misspell the word "bureaucracy" particularly diverting.
In the interim, it doesn't serve much trying to wind up people who are better placed due to historical choices. Wrapping statements up in pseudo intellect is just amusing for the rest of us.
