These are not hedge fund titans, but rather mundane couples earning quite unspectacular salaries and using much of that to service a mortgage.
If Vince Cable gets his way these very ordinary people will be forced to sell up and move out of the Borough.
As we know Vince is an economist and proof of his skills are his blundering attempt to justify giving away Royal Mail-now twice the flotation price!
The other day he even had the temerity and stupidity to suggest this about bankers...
'Bankers are not motivated by money and just want to be highly valued members of their company'
Terrifying to think this buffoon is in charge of UK business.
You may not like George Osborne but you can sympathise when he turned down a weekend with Mr and Mrs Cable....
Cable has a solution for the elderly, income poor: take in a lodger!
Nick Paget-Brown wrote a quite prescient PIECE some time ago forecasting what might happen if the Dancing Economist pushed through his daft tax.
Paget-Brown speculated that many owning homes in the £2 million to £4 million band would be forced to sell and their properties picked up, on a fire sale basis, by yet more dodgy foreign buyers who look upon a mansion tax as just a cheap way of laundering ill gotten gains.
We have three Lib Dem councillors on the Council and they are useless as Cable.
They even had the nerve to suggest that their leader be given a leader's allowance. As Barry Phelps would say,
"you could not make it up"
Hopefully, they will get booted out in May.
