Whatever you may think of Tony Blair’s foreign policy, domestically his government has been a disaster – over-regulating, over-taxing (some of the largest increases in the OECD, I recall), dedicated to the destruction of some of Britain’s better traditions – and the preservation of some of the worst. Now it seems that he is looking at increasing the death tax paid by some better off Britons, all in the name of ‘fairness’, whatever that is supposed to mean.
Well, not just ‘fairness’:
“The money would be redistributed to boost baby bonds, which are payable to all children born in Britain….”
Ah, ‘The Children’. I might have known.
