Budget and E-Petitions on housing

The budget, never mind the first-rung check out the smoke and mirrors

It would appear that 'pips can be squeezed' in relation to; mortgage interest rates, council tax, insurance costs, holiday taxes, airport taxes, etc. without a murmur. Houses rise in price by hundreds of thousands of pounds and middle England celebrate their equitable wealth, mess with petrol prices and fuel blockades ensue. Oh, and whilst on the subject of middle England, can you guess which E-Petition is also the most popular on the number 10 site? Yes, that's right, inheritance tax abolition, which received a massive boost in the budget to be implemented by 2010. Small comfort that the Government recognises who it actually needs to vote them back in.
