Britain’s new coalition government includes three cabinet members closely associated with ALTER, the Liberal Democrat’s Land Value Tax campaign group. ALTER chairman Tony Vickers investigates what this means for the prospects of just, sustainable and fair taxation.
After the most intriguing general election to be held in Britain since the Second World War, Britain now has a new coalition government. It is the first British government to include Liberals since 1945. It is also the first British government for almost a century to contain cabinet members who belong to a campaign group calling for the introduction of a land value tax.
