Government theft

Not content with taxing people to destruction, Gordon Brown wants to take all monies lying in dormant accounts (anything over three years) and give it to charity according to a report in The Times today.

It is nothing more than Government theft of private property. These funds (estimated at £4bn) do not belong to the Government so it is not for the Government to donate these funds to a third party. Would he mind if I visit a Government department, identify an an unused asset and give it to the charity of my choice?

Any "dormant" funds I have are in various building societies in anticipation that they convert to banks!!
