To those who have...

More shall be given!

An interesting angle on the inheritance tax debate.... The Sunday Times rich list estimates the combined wealth of the Cameron family at £30m. And in 2003 the Osborne and Little wallpaper business (part-founded by George's father) was valued at £13m. I think that answers the question as to just who would benefit from the Tory tax plans!

The Tory proposals mean that £1bn a year would go to estates worth more than £950,000 - i.e. the wealthiest 1% in the country. None of them living in Bristol East, I suspect.
