Two fatal flaws in the Tory quality of lfe proposals....and counting

Jock Coats was up late last night and spotted a Tory bloomer within their Quality of Life commission report. That is that outlawing stand-by functionality on TVs has already been announced by the government...thirteen months ago.

Iain Dale, bless him, has now spotted another fatal flow in one of the proposals:

I've just watched Zak Goldsmith's interview with Andrew Marr (HERE). His Quality of Life Policy Commission will be proposing that if your house is 'environmentally friendly' you will get a reduction in stamp duty when you sell it. Only one problem with that, as far as I can see. It is the buyer who pays stamp duty, not the seller.



  1. Let me say first of all that I am not a Conservative. Indeed I am a LibDem campaigner, but...

    ... in fairness to the Tories, not having to pay stamp duty will be an incentive for a buyer - in other words, although the seller will not directly benefit from not having to pay stamp duty, their property will be more attractive in the marketplace.

  2. You need us if you have any of these tax problems: Back
    , Unfiled Returns, Missing Records, Threat of Levy, or, if you need an Installment Agreement or an Offers in Compromise A tax levy or garnishment or attachment are all the same thing. The terms may be used interchangeably. A wage garnishment or levy may be against any asset. In the enforcement of tax collections. We prepare all Federal and State Unfiled tax Returns The Fair Tax Act (HR
    25/S 1025) is a bill in the United States Congress for changing Tax Solutions laws to replace the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and all federal income taxes (including Alternative Minimum Tax), Past due tax returns, Past due tax returns, Past due returns, Past due taxes, Unpaid tax, Tax negotiation, Wage levy, Robert M.
