Door Tax

This month sees the twentieth anniversary of the disastrous 'door tax', in which the British government experimented with a new form of local taxation based on the numbers of doors in a household. The scheme only lasted six months before it was scrapped, proving to be unworkable due to the number of people who simply bricked up their doorways to avoid the charge. To this day it remains unknown how many people still remain trapped in their homes.
