Legrain reminds us of a cracking idea to take on the landlords and landowners - a land tax
Philippe Legrain writes an excellent column today in The Times calling for Churchill's long-forgotten proposal from a century ago for there to be a land tax. This is the kind of radical thinking that the Labour Party ought to be engaged in. Politicians of the left must rediscover ways in which to tackle vested interests and in so doing enhance the rights and quality of life of ordinary people. A land tax ticks these boxes.
