    No thank you, you probably don't have an ideal as with socialism there is a total disregard for property rights.

    Tory girls are hot. There's a reason Tory boys have to buy lots of champagne/gin and tonics to get said tory girls sufficiently drunk to sleep with them. It's because tory guys are grotesque, corpulent, sweaty, smug *******s with all the charm and sophistication of a salted slug.

    I doubt any Tory girls would sleep with a person like you, generally they have a things called 'standards' so they wouldn't sleep with lefties.

    IT would be less unfair if the threashold had actually kept pace with inflation...it hasn't - even with the recent increase. It was a tax initially introduced at a level where it only hit the super rich, now anyone in the upper middle class and many of the middle class are hit with it.

    I have a real issue with how collection is dealt with though, I helped a friend deal with the formalities after her parents were killed in an accident - at 18 (and still in collage) she was forced to move out of her family home and sell it to pay the IT and get the rest of the estate released. She had no other family and it was soul destroying to see the pain she was in, losing her family was horrific but losing her home as well...

    It's not 40% of your "parents' life-time's work", it's 40% above the threshold, and the vast majority of people are under the threshold. Do you understand the difference? And quite frankly, when the education system is still churning out people who can't spell inheritance or use an apostrophe, I think the argument against reducing taxation is a rather weak one.

    Personally, I think IT is actually one of the fairer taxes - you didn't earn their income or their house or anything else they had, why should you get it just because they've popped their clogs? Surely taxes on work are worse?

    Wow I had no idea somebody could get so worked up about people doing well in life.You obviously don't feel too strongly about the idea of capitalism, more of a socialist arn't you, redistributing the wealth.
    However, I am sure if it was your money you would suddenly feel differently

    I'd prefer Communist to Socialist, really :rolleyes:

    Possibly I would. I sincerely hope that my moral compass wouldn't dissapear just because I had a greater stake in capitalist society, though. I mean, I hope that I lived 300 years ago if my family was in the slave-trade, I'd still be against slavery.

    Yeah cos owning a house worth more than 300 grand is really analogous to slavery :rolleyes:

    Is it just me or is inheritance tax just the worst of all taxes. It is so morally wrong. I'm not saying this because I'm selfish and want all my parents money, it itsn't that in the slightest. I just really dissagree with the government taking 40% of your parent's life-times work for NO reason. I would rather give it to a deserving charity then the government.

    Edit: changed spelling mistake as it seems to be upsetting people
    Yes, I think it's a bloody travesty. Which is why I intend to leave my money to my kids (assuming I have them) in the form of gold coins/bullion: artefacts, rather than an actual sum of money.

    That story about the 18 year old, her house was taken from her.. Kinda actually makes me feel sick. Why redistribute the wealth people have ALREADY been taxed on? and to whoever said that the children had no rights to whatever the parents had earned... that's just wrong... the government have even less claim.
