Abolishing Death Tax

The Express claims that its campaign to abolish Death Tax is immensely popular: the petition is showing 20,245 signatures at time of writing.
THOUSANDS of Daily Express readers are joining our vital crusade to abolish the hated inheritance tax.

Within just a few days, our internet petition demanding the end of the despised death duty has become one of the fastest growing ever on the Downing Street website.

Thousands of people have logged on to register their views and reveal their anger at how Gordon Brown has sat back and allowed the tax to trap a growing number of ordinary families.

The names are pouring in and we expect many thousands more to sign up in the coming days as the crusade gathers pace.
