    Shock horror – 100% of first time buyers have to pay about £20,000 a year in income tax, NIC, VAT and so on, in the year they buy the house and in each subsequent year that they go out and earn enough to pay off the huge mortgage.

    So by the time they have paid off the house, they will have paid half a million quid in tax, and two hundred thousand in privately collected tax (the cost of the land and the interest on the cost of the land).

    Oh yes, and then there’s the crippling £7,500 on top of that.
