    Not a good idea in my humble opinion.

    Another vote for not a good idea, as it’s regressive and likely to further distort the property market CM

    It is an awful idea and those who are signing it are doing it from an entirely selfish perspective, they are saying "I want to contribute less to society and I want more for myself". Considering that most people are already a net cost to the state, swinging that balance even further towards totally broken is a truly awful idea. 

    I say that as a higher rate taxpayer and a mortgage payer, so it would save me quite a bit of money, but saving me money does not make it right. 
    I see it working only if the Government is putting a charge of 32% on that property, something similar with HTB loan.
