Over-60's 'should be taxed out of their homes' to make room for the younger generations

Older people should be taxed out of their family homes to free up space for younger generations, says a report backed by Labour.

It argues that 'empty nesters' in their 60s are taking up too much room and should be 'encouraged' by a new 'land tax' to downsize to smaller homes.
The call comes from the Intergenerational Foundation, a left-leaning think-tank that aims to 'promote fairness between generations'.

Labour MP Tessa Jowell sponsored the report's launch in a Commons hospitality room yesterday, saying the current situation ran against Ed Miliband's vision for Britain.
But the 'bedroom blocker' plan drew condemnation from Tory ministers and pressure groups for older people."

Look, next time the Brits need help beating off the Krauts...and there WILL be a next time... let the Hun have his way. As a people, the Brits are a wonderful lot. As a society, they are one small step above retarded forest fairies.
