- 97. Autumn Statement: George Osborne dares Labour to oppose his 1% a year cap | Mail Online
Benefits will be squeezed for three years as George Osborne tries to lay down dividing lines with Labour before the next election.The Chancellor vowed to return ‘fairness’ to the benefits system by capping rises in working age benefits at 1 per cent from April 2013, half the rate of inflation.And he said the Government would introduce a Bill to enshrine the cap in law – forcing the Opposition into a corner over whether to oppose limits in welfare which polls show are popular with the public.

- 98. Even in the current mood, anti-tax candidates can win – provided their motives are trusted...
Can anyone, in the wake of the banking collapse, win an election on a pro-banking and anti-tax platform? Yes. Boris.Smaller government was the centrepiece of the Mayor’s manifesto. He made a point of going into the poll as a ‘tax-cutting Conservative’, and repeated the phrase again and again.He was unashamedly in favour of tax cuts for the rich – as part of a programme of tax cuts for everyone. He opposed the 50p top rate, and led the campaign against curbs on pay and bonuses. Yet, at a time when Tories were losing everywhere else, Boris won.

Footballer Sol Campbell said he is considering joining the Conservatives to fight Labour’s mansion tax, claiming the party has declared “open season” on wealthy property owners.The former England star claimed Labour regard people with properties worth more than £2 million as “sitting ducks” and said the property raid would drive wealth out of the country.Instead, he said Labour would attract more votes by targeting companies such as Starbucks and Amazon and making them pay a fairer level of tax rather than picking on people like him “who have already paid their dues”.

- 101. There's nothing big society about capping big donations to charities The Tory Diary
George Osborne gave a good defence of his Budget yesterday, declaring that he wasn't in this for short-term politics but had taken decisions for the long-term competitiveness of the UK economy. Putting aside my belief that he should have done a lot more on competitiveness a lot earlier, should have accelerated spending cuts so he could afford substantial emergency tax relief for the low-paid and, thirdly, putting aside the Budget's dodgy presentation, I can't quarrel with most of the individual budget decisions. The so-called granny tax is perfectly justifiable given the heavy burdens on the young. The pasty tax clears up the anomaly whereby you pay VAT in a fish'n'chip shop but not for your pie in Greggs. The tapering of the child benefit policy tackles the cliff edge problem. Most of all the 50p and corporation tax cuts are vital for the UK economy's job creating potential (although if you are going to take the flak for lowering the top rate you might as well cut it to 40p and straight away).

- 103. 'Backdoor mansion tax' on £2m homes could treble council bills - Telegraph
A local authority has been accused of plotting a "backdoor mansion tax" by hitting wealthy households with higher council tax.Members of Brighton council, which is run by the Green Party, have suggested a “progressive council tax” that would result in a steep increase in local rates.The tax, the first of its kind in the country, would be means tested, and supporters say only the richest 20 per cent of households would be in the higher bracket. Conservatives attacked the proposals as “unfair” and likened them to the plans for a mansion tax favoured by the Liberal Democrats.Labour warned that wealthy households could end up paying up to 200 per cent more in annual council tax bills.

- 111. Wages are too low
Let me make common cause today with the labour movement. Wages in the UK are too low. Instead of spending so much time complaining about the pay of a minority who are well paid in the private sector, maybe we should spend more time asking how more people can enjoy higher pay. I am not one of those hypocritical commentators on a good salary always urging pay restraint on others.Before the labour movement gets too excited, however, I do believe a couple of other things about pay. I do not think you can legislate successfully for higher pay. It has to be earned. The problem with minimum wage legisaltion is if you set it too high you drive jobs away, and if you set it too low it has no benefiical impact. If you get it somewhere in the middle it does not deliver great living standards, and may still encourage non compliance and a larger black economy. Labour’s minimum wage has left many people on low pay and in receipt of benefit top ups so they have a more reasonable income.

- 112. The Commentator - Black market blues: why the UK must close the tax gap on tobacco, fuel and...
A few weeks ago nearly 50,000 illegal cigarettes and 50kg of hand rolling tobacco worth £19,000 were seized by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) in a series of raids on shops in Derby. That haul represents just one small part of a huge illicit market operating in Britain. It’s a constant battle for HMRC to try and stay one step ahead of the smugglers and their activities, which are costing taxpayers billions.The latest research by the TaxPayers’ Alliance suggests that no less than £28.5 billion in tax revenue has been lost to the black market in spirits, beer, cigarettes, hand rolling tobacco and diesel in the last five years. Not so much an excise gap as a tax gulf; it’s enough money to fund a penny cut in the basic rate of Income Tax for all UK earners. Not only does the black market cost taxpayers money, it has a devastating impact on retailers selling legitimate products, who cannot compete with those who are breaking the law. George Osborne could do something about all of this, and help struggling families at the same time by cutting the duty on tobacco, fuel and alcohol. Yet instead he actually used Budget 2012 to increase duty on tobacco, fuel and alcohol, despite the fact that we already have amongst the highest tobacco and fuel duties in the world – and despite the fact that those on relatively low incomes are the most likely to smoke, drink and depend on their cars, making these probably the most regressive measures in the Budget.
