    Labour: The mansion tax to come in during the first year

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 23 Dec 2014, 12:11 pm

    Mansion tax to come in during first year of Labour government, says Ed Balls

    Shadow chancellor says asset-rich but cash-poor will be able to defer levy on homes worth more than Ł2m

    The shadow chancellor said the levy on homes worth more than Ł2m would be introduced in Labour’s first budget and that the Treasury would start collecting the money in the 2015-16 financial year.

    Well folks, that is the first of the Labour's promises that we will hold them to if they do get in at the 2015 election.

    This is, by no means, a forgone conclusion !

    Anybody ?

    Maybe that's just "wishful thinking" as they must be worried that they have lost a lot of votes to the SNP, in Scotland.

    I saw a report yesterday, cannot remember where, when it was stated in a new poll that the Labour seats in Westminster, from Scotland could be reduced to only ten seats.

    Found it !

    The ICM survey for The Guardian puts SNP support at 43% compared to 26% for Labour.

    If those numbers were repeated across Scotland next May the SNP would have 45 of Scotland's 59 MPs while Labour would fall from 41 to 10.

    In the same poll it was said that The Lib Dems would lose 8 of their 11 Scottish MPs and the Tories would keep their solitary seat.

    If Miliband sees those figures he must be terrified that so many SNP seats in Westminster could kill off his hopes for a Labour Victory.

    Oh, isn't this fun ? Twisted Evil

    Well done Angie.

    While that is not actually "good" news for Labourites like me, I am sure that the reading of it will give Milband and Balls and the rest of the Labour opposition a lot to think about before the actual election hustings start.

    I found it too folks.

    Here is the report from The Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2014/dec/26/labour-bloodbath-scotland-general-election-2015-snp-westminster

    I hope that Miliband reads The Guardian, as if he does he cannot be anything other than shocked at that result.

    The trouble with this is that if the Tories ever get back in they will repeal this bill instantly.
