Yes but from a rates point of view a person on say 100 000 living in a 100 000 house would pay the same as someone earning 25 000. living in a 100 000. There is no redistribution of wealth from that. If you wanted to go along an ability to pay form of rates. Then you go down the route of % of income.
Yeah, the rates had their own problems, but I'm not sure there are too many penniless people living in incredibly high-priced houses. Seems like an issue that would have affected far fewer people.
