Why we need property taxes
"This is the incredible staircase of a Â£3m '"forgotten" Georgian mansion which has gone on the market in the heart of London's East End. Built between July 1741 and October 1742, the spooky four-storey Malplaquet House has not been lived in since 1895 but has been restored by its current owners." On top of it, squatting has been criminalised now. This could have provided housing for lots of people for 120 years and the owner would still have made out like a bandit even if they burnt it to the ground.
