Ed Miliband volunteers to pay proposed mansion tax

It’s all about fairness, Mr Miliband says. He would be happy to pay the mansion tax proposed by Labour, admitting that his house in Dartmouth Park “might well be” worth more than £2 million.

Ed Miliband has said that he would be happy to pay the mansion tax proposed by Labour, on his house that is likely to be worth over a million pounds.

In an interview with the Times, he said his house in Dartmouth Park, London, "might well be" worth more than £2 million.

The difference between Cameron and me is that he’s cutting taxes for himself, I might be raising them for myself. You've got food banks all around the country. These are dire circumstances for a lot of people. The notion that it’s right to take money off the poorest people but the rich can’t get by is just wrong.

– Ed Miliband
