NotesNews: "Millions of people would be forced to disclose the value of their homes, investments and assets under Liberal Democrat plans for an emergency tax on wealth. The Deputy Prime Minister believes that the proposed tax, which would see an annual levy of about half a per cent on the value of a person's total wealth, could raise billions of pounds to prevent deeper public spending cuts. .... Senior Tories described the tax plan as a "kite-flying exercise" by Mr Clegg which was highly unlikely to become government policy. The Lib Dem leader caused confusion when he said higher taxes on the rich were necessary if society was to "remain cohesive". ... " Robert Winnett, The Guardian
