Sorry Gareth,not a question but a suggestion.

Most people will struggle to get over the misconception that they will be double taxed on their only hard-earned asset worth anything, their house. They will not see how the net effect is a tax reduction as their income tax is reduced by more than the asset tax. A simple online calculator, if that's possible and with all the necessary caveats, would help people like myself understand if they will be net winners or losers. I support the policy regardless, for the same reasons as you, but it can only help if 80% can see they would likely be voting for a tax cut. The comments I've seen so far indicate that even intelligent and questioning people are misunderstanding the policy so the only, way to get the message across might be to demonstrate how it could work at a personal level.
