TAPE: Burnham Brings Back Brown Death Tax

Another day, another mysterious recording of a candid Labour shadow cabinet minister emerges. Andy Burnham has been caught on tape confirming he wants Labour to resurrect a 15% death tax on estates, a policy he drafted before the last election but Gordon Brown was forced to ditch amid a wave of criticism:

“I put that forward before the last election to support a national care service….My personal view is I still think the best way to do it is to go for the solution that you discussed (tax on estates) but there is a debate to be had on whether that is acceptable the public. I think it is….it’s only where you create a system where everyone is in and everyone is then covered, that I think you’ll be able to help people protect their own homes. If you have that system, people would pay 10/15%….you can see where I’m coming from, these are big changes, we’re going to have start with integrating the NHS first but in time I would also like to see the system you describe, I will hope that what we come up with Labour will embrace the full version.”

Not only do Labour want you to pay 40% inheritance tax, they also want a 15% death levy on estates when you die…
