Darling To Play Catch-up

So Alistair Darling may signal changes to Inheritance Tax in the Pre-Budget Report this afternoon.

I wonder where he got that idea from?

For George Osborne this should be a win-win. If Darling raises the threshold further, or drops the rate, then it will surely make our proposals cheaper, thus enabling the revenue from the non-dom levy to be spread a little further in other tax cuts. And of course, with the media rather more sceptical of the Brown government than they were eight days ago, the attempted “shooting of the tory fox” will be shown up as an opportunist and desperate reaction to our own proposals.

Sadly, I will not be able to watch the speech as I’ll be partaking of the pleasure of a VAT update seminar. How will I contain the excitement?
