    Well it's not really a big ideological differene is it? The same amount of money will be raised, by the same people, for the same reason (they live in a house). The tax will be graduated in much the same way, except some people wil pay a bit more and some people will pay a bit less.

    A big ideological difference would be scrapping local taxation and doing it all centrally, for example. scratching around the margins is what this election is all about, and that's why the explanations are important, because it's all about details, not 'strategy' as the BBC and others repeatedly mis-informs us.
