    Today's Times has Vince Cable saying he has finally got Cameron to agree to his "mansion tax" - an extra tax on high value properties on the death of the owner.
    Good on you Tories!
    LOL
    I thought the proposed "mansion tax" was to be an annual charge not a charge on death?

    Today's Times appears to suggest the sort of figure would be 0.5% of the house value and a threshold of circa £2 million was postulated.
