LBC Radio is waxing lyrical about the ‘new’ death duty the government is discussing with the extra payment to cater for elderly care.
So, once I die, I have to fork over an extra £20k to the government to pay for any elderly care I might need. What if I don’t need it? What if I politely stay well, never need elderly care and then cleanly die in my bed of a stroke one night. Nice and neat.
What then? Do I still have to pay?
As you can see from the add, the Conservatives were using this as a reason NOT to vote for the Labour government.
Well,I guess we’ll all be looking for a loophole, mine will be to give all my money to my kids WELL before I die, and then get them to pay for everything. Lock, stock and barrel..I pay my taxes, I don’t need to pay more when I’m dead!
