I have worked all my life and have paid more than enough taxes.They should be chasing up the wealthy tax dodgers instead of the more vulnerable people.

It is an iniquitous tax, unfairly discriminating against people with fewer means, and it takes little or no account of a house-holders needs, possessions, interests, family visits accommodation, or anything. That politicians, many of whom have more than one house, should promote this sort of thing is a total disgrace and outrage. Shame on them!

This a punitive and vindictive and unnecessary tax that must be stopped.
