Like George Osborne, here:
Mr Osborne told the Conservative party conference in Blackpool that the £3.1bn cost of increasing the inheritance tax threshold and the £400m bill for scrapping stamp duty would be funded by imposing a £25,000-per-year charge for "non-domicile" taxpayers.
And David "Bloody" Cameron, here:
Every tax reduction we're speaking about this week, like the change in stamp duty, will be fully paid for by tax changes elsewhere.
And The Telegraph's Brenda Carlin, here:
The proposals ... would mean a tax reduction that would cost the Treasury £2.6 billion
Only last week, my next-door neighbours didn't give me a trillion pounds. Where the hell am I going to find that kind of money?
