Has Cameron Gaffed On Inheritance Tax ?

Made me chuckle....

30 April 2010  — David Cameron allegedly says different things off camera as he did on camera during final tv leaders' debate.

During the debate, Cameron said:

“Now, let me answer this question directly about inheritance tax. I believe in this country that if you work hard and you save money and you put aside money and you try and pay down your mortgage on a family home, you shouldn’t have to sell that or give it to the taxman when you die. You should be able to pass it on to your children. It’s the most natural human instinct of all, and I’m afraid these other two parties simply don’t understand that.

    “Inheritance tax should only be paid by the richest, by the millionaires; it shouldn’t be by people who’ve worked hard and done the right thing in their lives.”

After the debate, speaking to Keith Bevan – a member of the audience – David Cameron is alleged to have said, “it’s only a small amount of money”.

The exchange was relayed by Mr Bevan to listeners of Radio 5 Live:
