  • If your house is your pension, where are you going to live when you retire?

    Was it del boy that called his uncle a “saucy git” when he used to say “i’m only an old age pensioner”.

    This raises again the inadequacy of our tax system. Some people rich in assets require long-term care and spend most of their wealth buying it, which on the face of it seems fair, whereas others die suddenly and pass on their money to their offspring, provided they have sorted out the inheritance tax avoidance, which seems less fair.

    Progressive income tax, land tax, capital gains tax on a main residence have all been suggested. I think these are probably fairer alternatives (the govt then funding care in old age), but I doubt either of the main parties will put these into their manifesto, just as they have no stomach to do much about transport.

    I am coming to expect nothing from the state and increasingly want to hand over a little of my income as possible to be wasted. I resent ever more the fact that, as you move into the higher rate, the state takes more than half. Greedy, bluberry overveight leech!

    In a nation where people are taught only to look after themselves, every citizen will need to be financially independent by the time they retire, or face misery and poverty – no one is encouraged to help you. Indeed, following the government’s lead, (taxation, inflation) increasingly they will take more money off you to feather their own nests.
