When it comes to tax dodgers and moving money and assets overseas he may have a point but what about mansion tax covered in the same speach. Is a tax on property the way to go?

France now want their top earners to pay 75% tax!!

But will this just lead to businesses and individuals moving to lower tax countries?

Will the UK be a winner, the UK Government want us to have the lowest corporation tax rate in Europe and we are moving towards a main rate of 20%.
