We face the most substantial economic downturn in generations. The whole world faces a financial crisis the like of which we have not seen for decades. The Conservatives might have thought that the No. 1 priority was to cut inheritance tax. Surely they would question not only having such a policy, but the fact that they cannot even pay for it. On
"what I'm saying is with the Conservatives' plans these are funded, on inheritance tax we will pay for it with the long-established proposals we've put forward on non-domiciles."
The next day, again on the BBC, the shadow Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform said:
"We don't know how many non-doms will be here, we don't know how much our policy of raising fair taxation from foreigners who work in this country will raise".
In other words, the policy is not only unfair but unfunded. Does not that tell us everything we need to know about where today's Conservative party is?
