    Default London Mayor Johnson on taxing homes without an upper limit,a mansions tax

    Labour Leader Gilmore resolved a row over the budget with Taoiseach Kenney by getting him to agree to a tax without an upper limit on homes,a mansions tax. Given that numerous Irish heritage homes have fallen into disrepair and ruin in the past because of mansions taxes,only philistines or the socially envious could favour them. Mayor Johnson attributes proposals for a mansions tax in the UK to the spitefulness of the Labour Party leadership.Mansion tax: Labour shows its true colours with this spiteful tax on homes - Telegraph

    Hopefully,the next government will not need the votes of socially envious,spiteful politicians and can put a sensible upper limit on tax on houses.

    There are heritage houses and there are mansions - don't confuse the two.

    If a building is of real historic interest, it will be possible to generate sufficient income from it to pay property and inheritance taxes.

    Heritage houses are older mansions.

    It's always been odd to me how some people have a fetish for these vast country piles that were built on the proceeds of slavery and abhorrent trade practices or pure and simple criminality. They are legacies of an ugly social order that we should never let happen again. Burn them down. They offend.

    Mansions of the past became heritage homes!

    A lot of historic heritage homes went to ruin in Ireland,possibly because nationalist Ireland had no interest in the homes of the former Ascendancy Protestants-"Belted Earls" as one government minister referred to them in support of a 1960s project to tear down Georgian Dublin houses.
