Stamp Duty

Fine Fail are expected to chime in with the rest of the choir this morning on Stamp Duty and of course will go one better and propose to backdate the reform of the tax for 1st time buyers. No matter how much distance they have tried to put between this and similar announcements from the other parties the move smacks of hypocrisy in light of throwing the term auction politics around in the last few weeks.

Well auction politics is the term which has entered the vernacular and you tuathal have defended the misuse of language before on the basis that its the given term hat people use and is not the cause of any great confusion so hence I use it here.
