I bet todays pensioners /retired had a slice of that, did they get subsidized mortgages,? in a way yes.
then it was stopped for my generation ,
and now look at todays pensioner, very wealthy them that could afford to buy there own houses.good private and company pension,state pension all taxed .good that's fair enough!
but what I,m getting at is,
theres so much talk of people releasing equity in there houses during retirement and its tax free,
Well if they choose to release equity in there house and they benefitted from MIRAS, said equity should be taxed, after all they had tax refief on the purchase ,that's a way of pensioners giving something back to there country who treated them so well when first starting out,DO you think that's fair?
I wonder if past goverments have forgot about that,it could be another stealth tax,that would get some cash in the coffers to help the poor immigrants
