Like many parents I worry about how my children are ever going to get their foot on the property ladder and what I will leave them when I'm gone.
Like many listeners I was delighted to hear Brown say he was going to raise the inheritance tax allowance from £285,000 to £350,000 by 2010 - until I did the maths.
House prices in the UK are still rising by 10% a year so a house worth £285,000 will be worth £380,000 by 2010 - so yet again the allowances dont keep up with the inflation.
I learnt my maths in Cambridge City. Prices there are rising at 22% a year so the same home would be worth £520,000.
Gordon yet again you have failed to give me much hope for my children.
