Cable Ties Himself In Knots Over Land Value Tax

"You could replace business rates with a tax based on the value of the site; then, instead of council tax, you could have a property tax based on the underlying value of the land calculated on an annual basis.”

The words of Vince Cable the dancing business minister.

Hang on. De ja vu. Replace business rates and council tax with a land value tax? I think the Libdems will find that was a central part of the Green Party manifesto.

I dunno. Libdems. They're either secret Tories or secret Greens. If only they'd come clean.
