Wrinkles BS: End of and Era;UK TAX on Homeimprovments (6) BS: End of and Era;UK TAX on Homeimprovments 17 Jun 05


Cought the UK paper's headlines today.

Ridding on the back of the fashion for Homeimprovements and small one-familiy property developments the Gove are going to be taxing homeimprovemnets.

For samll ops like this,admitidly for selfish reasons, preserve old cotages, railways stations, chapels, villages and rectories; but they do so on very tight margins. Tax in any form will devestate this enterprise.

And it's not just developers; homeowners will be taxed too on things like garages and extenstions and conservatories.

There'll be work lost over this, and not just because the few that are able to go on won't provide enough materiel for 3 days of Discovery Realtime TV shows either.

Socialist one expects to go after the Suits, but this legislation is aimed at Joe and Joanna Bloggs trying to make life better for thenselves - and that's not socialist in my book.

Barbara (angry at yet another New Labour betrayal of socialist principles)
