    Isn't it a tax on over 40s? Not exactly old people
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Isn't this the plan to tax over 40's, so getting the younger generation to pay for the boomers care again?

    Also nationalising social care after presiding over it being run into the ground for the last 10 years, so the tax payer can take the hit to fix the mess they made. Yup sounds like standard Tory policy.

    With things going so good in UK wouldn't bank on living to the age of 40.

    I'm not sure how I feel about a tax on over 40s

    On one hand it feels like a kick in the balls for people paying taxes over the past 10-20 years, with a significantly higher cost of housing and living than their parents, to get slapped with even more costs in later life. It's shitty that the previous generation got a free ride.

    On the other, something has to be done I suppose. Otherwise you will just have more and more resentment in later generations with an increasingly ageing population.

    We could enforce current tax regulations and close loopholes almost exclusively exploited by the very wealthy and corporations...

    Didnt they just abolish business rates for a year for small businesses? Didnt they lose £6 bil plus more than forcast when they dropped rates in 2017 by 2% too?

    Its a fucking swindle

    Think covid is a lower risk than trying to balance my fat arse on a bike I haven't ridden in 10+ years on a main road.

    the alternative is you undo the IHT "reforms" gideon brought in and remove the ability to trivially dodge it with trusts

    but people like paying 50% on their nan's house even less than they enjoying paying 2% towards their social care 20+ years in the future

    Once the care homes are paid for it won't be much left of the inheritance anyways.

    If it is written in Python it is most likely Machine Learning.
    If it is written in PowerPoint it is most likely AI.

    I would absolutely love to cycle to work, but I have nowhere to store a bike at home and nowhere to store one at work.

    The issue with cycling in this country isn't that bikes are slightly too expensive, it's that we have no infrastructure for biking.

    Meanwhile, I havent ever owned a car. Bike to work, carsharing + delivery for acquiring stuff, bus and train for travel.

    Granted, I dont have a garden and dont need to shop groceries for a family, but still it feels nice to not have that financial weight around my neck.
