Here is Matt Taibbi, an American columnist on what a complete repeal of the Estate Tax would cost most Americans. Given that Stephen Byers is so eager to thrust the same idea on us (with the help of Richard Madely who mentions it as often as he can wedge it into an item - God, I have too much time on my hands), might it not be an idea for someone to do the same for Great Britain.

Who benefits the most from the repeal of inheritance tax? In numbers, in Great Britain.

And who pays? What won't we have (hospitals? schools? roads?) as a result. Unfortunately, I'm far too lazy to do it myself. Richard and Judy doesn't watch itself, you know...
