They need to make sure tax rises are fair, proportionate and do not impact on the vulnerable, on the recovery or on essential elements of the economy,
So, how about a 'bling tax'?
Slap 30% VAT on the sort of rubbish that is shipped from China one week and landfilled the next week. The stuff that is bought by the idiots that always seem to have money to waste on drink, cigarettes and flashy trash, even if they are out of work.
For good measure, I'd also throw in a 'sustainability tax' applied to packaged products. Ditch the layers of plastic and bring back brown paper bags. The Lib Dems would surely approve.
It goes without saying that items such as food, books, childrens clothes should be safeguarded.
