The possible suspension or deferment of stamp duty can only mean one thing...
Gordon Brown fears that he's about to be made homeless and needs a new home fast! The Prime Minister hates paying taxes as much as the next man so he only ever raises taxes on items that don't affect him directly.
If he could drive, he would have felt the pain of increased fuel duty over the years.
If he owned a car, he would fear increases in Vehicle Excise Duties.
If he had his own pension, he would have felt the impact of his raid on pensions.
