    Congratulations to Bob Thompson.
    Some food for thought….
    The Lib Dems favour a Mansion Tax, which I treat as an extension of Council Tax. This under the guise of “A fair Society” promoted by Nick Clegg.
    But..
    It bears no relation to income/ability to pay, just like Council Tax.
    If the Lib Dems want a fair society, what about also dealing with….
    All the poor people who have to pay Council Tax.
    All the MILLIONS of wage earners who pay NO Council Tax (because they happen to share a home).
    Picking on mansions is easy. Sorting out the dreadful iniquities of Council Tax has been shunned by successive governments.
    Maybe the Lib Dems will broaden their attention beyond mansion owners/residents.
    After all, everybody benefits from Local Authority spending, so why do so few pay Council Tax?
