Just add up one more, that will go a long way to cut the deficit. Referendum to decide membership of the EU and get rid of the extortionate contributions of the UK to the European bureaucracy. Like your suggestions, political decisions have to be made to carry these changes out. Out of the EU plus your suggestions we will have a successful and enterprising UK

You have some very good ideas here in my opinion, if only politicians had such level headed thinking and less one sentence word sound-bites for the mob.
One thing I do have a problem with is linking local government taxation to house value, especially at the lower level.
To borrow one of your analogies if the managing director of Goldman (and wife) lived in my house, they would pay the same level of council tax as me. I doubt however that this would equate to about 45% of disposable income after taxation and rent.
