Clear blue water?

It is reported today that a Conservative think tank will recommend the abolition of inheritance tax. I hope Cameron heeds their advice and adopts the removal of this iniquitous legalised state theft. As a Christian I believe that Scripture teaches God approves of two ways of receiving wealth, hard work or an inheritance. Our government discourages the latter by this taxation of assets yet encourages gambling by promoting a lottery and making gambling gains non-taxable. The average house owner in London now has to employ advisers to avoid inheritance tax at death. This tax should go. Tax gambling winnings instead. Easy come, easily taxed.
