The UK have introduced a static caravan tax. To my understanding it makes a caravan the same as a mobile home, tax wise.

PM has says it closes a loophole in the tax system but it's fair to say that a certain section of society here and there will be targeted by this tax. Not hobbyists or recreational users.

Do we agree with them in the UK? Should we follow suit?

Waste of time they pay no tax anyway and contribute nothing to society

Define "leisure" use. Would Leisure Suit Larry be exempt?

Ah, another priceless victim. We'll let Filty Phil know and he can double up on your Household/Water/Static Caravan/Holiday home/waste collection/ Septic Tank taxes, which I'm sure as a law abiding Citizen you will only be too happy to cough up And sure what's more, if you have a 2nd abode for leisure, feck it, you can well afford to pay for it, like the rest of them. There travelling Wilbery houses are far more luxurious than my static bricks and mortor.

Its actually not a bad idea. Prove its taxed or have it seized. Also allows them to be tracked.

Out of my cold dead hands he can pry my money.
Only way of getting names would be through the ESB, we still get billed for standing charge even when there's no usage.
Many owners run jennys so there'd be no record of them.
