Personal Quote:

I have issues with inheritance tax, particularly coming from a migrant family. My dad has worked incredibly hard all his life so it seems odd to me that someone who has gone through that experience and has managed to save then gets taxed for dying. It seems an odd source of income for the Government.

Trivia:

He is a big fan of The Beatles. See more »
