IF ANOTHER COUNTRY CAN DO THIS THEN WHY NOT GRAT BRITAIN. MOST OF OUR COUNTRY'S WEALTH IS IN THE HANDS OF THE LEAST PEOPLE. MANY CANNOT SPEND A FRACTION OF THEIR WEALTH IN THEIR LIFETIME. THEY LEAVE IT TO FAMILY WHO ARE STINKING RICH ANYWAY. MONEY IS MEANT TO BE SPENT AFTER YOU HAVE PROTECTED YOUR FUTURE !!!

There are people living in high value properties that were not high value when they bought. External forces have cause people to be asset rich and cash poor. Take the home out of the equation.
You're an idiot. By your logic if you sold that house you should get only as much as you paid.

You can't have it both ways.

Pol Pot decided the very same thing in Cambodia skip the small steps and go straight in for communism.
As usual it did not work out too well with the country impoverished and millions dead.

Yes, ‘brainwashed’ by the tough time my severely war-disabled father had in keeping us together on the tiny sum he received as a war pension while the tax-dodging rich added yachts to their collection.

Tax the rich!

Yes, a Marxist and I’ll not grovel like you to your corrupt and deceitful masters !
