    It will never be paid back in full, but buyers can pretend it’s liquid AAA security that they can use as collateral for highly leveraged risky gambling.

    Next!

    Cue the official denials. Followed by Javid's sacking.
    Well, almost. Certainly the hand of Cummings.

    "In a column this morning, Allister Heath warned that the Tories are courting disaster by flirting with a tax raid on wealth

    He wrote:

    No new taxes: that ought to be a golden rule for any Conservative government, especially one embarking on the most ambitious revamp of our economy, culture, politics and legal system in a generation. Bizarrely, however, discussions have been held at the highest levels in Nos 10 and 11 Downing Street about the possibility of a massive raid on pension contributions, a mansion tax-style wealth tax and a bevvy of other levies.

    None of these reheated Corbynite and Milibandesque “ideas” was included in the manifesto; almost all would directly target Telegraph readers and others who have supported the Tories (and Boris Johnson personally) for the past 20 years. So what is going on? Is the nomenklatura rampaging out of control?

    Are the clever-silly mandarins using the latest incarnation of our ever-changing “fiscal rules” to trip up Sajid Javid, furious that he has slapped them down on Brexit and infrastructure? Is this some misfiring attempt at class war against wealthy London Remainers, signalling to Northern recruits that the Tories have changed? Whatever it is, there is no justification for any of this nonsense.
    "

    The Tories are courting disaster by flirting with a tax raid on wealth

    The only tax that should be put in is on former MPs, with "progressive" grades for those of them who were ministers, and reserve special rate for CoE (101%) and PM (999%).

    "Seems clear that Downing St wanted to write the Budget, Sajid wanted to remain in charge of the Budget, and that's what this is all about.
    One source said: "They want to write the Budget, that wasn't happening, but now it will."

    Too right, WTF Javid was anyway? Totally out of his depth, McDonald was running rings around him last summer, completely unprepared for the job, good riddance.

    The last half way competent COE was Alistair Darling.

    None of the Tory Bastards(tm) have been up to much, in particular not the Biscuit whose one track theme was austerity austerity austerity.

    He was piece of tulip who removed sensible business taper relief that encouranged long term share holdings and replaced it with limited ER which is (maybe was) about to get nuked.

    The last sensible Chancellor was the one who dropped top income tax rate to 40%.

    That's a very low bar you've set there...
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...
