Isn’t that what I said George?

The Guardian reports that George Osborne said to Andrew Marr yesterday:

What's controversial with some in my party is raising CGT. Here is a tax where at the moment we see massive income tax evasion, we see people shifting their income … and that's not fair given the current situation, so we'll deal with that.

George, have you been reading the TUC’s “Missing Billions”?

Or the TUC’s Capital Gains Tax report?

Because it sure as heck sounds like it.

Glad to know we’re on the same hymn sheet sometimes.
