Andy Burnham Suggest Land Tax

Recommended Posts

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/aug/26/land-value-tax-labour-party

Today I am setting out a plan for a radical reform of the tax system. At its heart is a land value tax (LVT) – an idea so old-Labour it can be traced back to Thomas Paine. But it is also a plan that draws on the best instincts of New Labour.

The LVT, an annual tax on the market rental value of land, would allow for the abolition of stamp duty – a tax on the aspirations of young people to put down roots and get on in life.

Burnham was suggesting this (albeit very timidly) a couple of weeks ago.

Why is it Milliblair and Millibrown are seen as lead candidates, while all the ideas (good, bad, and total balls-up) are coming from the other candidates?

It was mentioned on radio 4 this morning again.

Are there any other ideas or have they just been slating each other? I've not paid much attention tbh.
