Homes should not be tax havens

Recommended Posts

Interesting article/points made by this guy in his blog on how UK homes have been transformed into mini tax havens & how to address this via wealth tax/LVT/CGT. He has previously advocated People's/Green QE & has advised the Labour Party.

UKGOV is short of tax revenue.

Foreign people inisist on buying UK housing for investment.

Foreigners dont vote.

Tax them 10% of purchase price/y.

UKGOV is too soft on non nationals. tax the fckers.

Totally agree and will be asking Sadiq Khan why he hasn't proposed this when I attend his People's QT as housing is one of the issues, if I get to ask a question of course.

Powerful VIs want to maintain the flow of money into property from overseas...good luck in getting the change in the law.  Little people that suffer from the inflated prices count for nothing...
