Defending the indefensible

April 30, 2008 6:55 PM

Further to my comments on the Fabian Society's attempts to "defend inheritance tax" and launch an anti-taxpayers alliance, Nick Cowen over at Civitas has written up an account of the Fabians' debate on the topic, held last night.


It's an amusing account, and lays out several crucial arguments against both inheritance tax and the tinpot alternative that the Fabians' pamphlet proposed. I wish I could have attended myself and given you an account straight from the horses' mouth, but I'm not sure how well a speech from the TaxPayers' Alliance would have gone down! Nick's analysis of the meeting is well worth a read.
