I thought that once we had paid for something, it was ours. Maybe we want to sell the house to pay for elderly care, but that is up to us, surely? The government can't just walk along and say “Well, that's a nice 120K house, we'll have that”. Not in Britain? Theresa May seems to think it's a perfectly acceptable idea. In my humble opinion, that would be considered theft. Perhaps we should call it the "Burglar Bill".
However, seeing as they've stripped the poorest of their rights recently, perhaps it's only fair that the other half get to feel the pinch that they've been quite happy to deliver to the most vulnerable over the past near decade. My bedroom tax wont pay itself, you know? But no, let's be realistic. As much as a taste of your own medicine sounds nice, it's definitely nasty and that's why I never vote for the nasty party.
Maybe those who thought that Labour couldn't match up to the needs of the nation can be asked to think again. I'm seeing strong and positive manifestos from Labour, Liberal Democrats, and the Greens this year. Which ever way you go, do you want to hand the deeds of your hard earned home to the government, free of charge, or would you rather pay for an extra pint or two of milk a week in the tax bill, if you can afford it? I'd like the milk please.
