Land tax redux

Has Lord Oakeshott been reading my blog?

Me, last year, on the subject of a Land Value Tax:

The left’s billions in lost taxes are just as elusive as the right’s billions of public sector waste. When you look at the detail, trying to get hold of either is like trying to nail jelly to the wall.

Lord Oakeshott, last week, on the Lib Dems’ Mansion Tax proposal:

Taxing the super-rich is like hammering nails into a jelly – the only bit that can’t wobble offshore is their luxury property.

Great minds, eh?
