by Ray Weaver The S-R-SF coalition shouldn't take our support for granted, the party warns The rhetoric was hot and the mood sharp at Enhedslisten’s (EL) annual convention, held last weekend at Korsgadehallen in Nørrebro. Rumours out of Christiansborg indicated...
Speaking about the rumours that Enhedslisten would attempt to break up the coalition government and force an election, Lindblom said: "We would never overturn a red government, but it has to be red in action, not just in name. They should not take us for granted."
Former MP Line Barfod, who received the third-highest amount of votes of the 25 members on the executive committee, was also critical of the government.
"There is no doubt that we do not support increasing inequality in Denmark or cutting aid to the sick and the disabled,” she told Politiken.
Barfod said that EL would support Thorning-Schmidt’s government if it implemented the policies that they were elected to put in place.
EL’s financial spokesperson, Frank Aaen, said that the party is looking to increase the taxes on profits homeowners earn when they sell their house.
“People in some areas of the country have earned more money while they were asleep than while they were at work, just because they owned a house in an area where values increased,” Aaen told Berlingske. “We want to tax those increases when a home is sold.” The tax would be calculated on the selling price of the house, minus the purchase price and would exclude any improvements that were made on the property.
Socialistisk Folkeparti's tax spokesman, Jonas Dahl, warned that introducing such a tax in today’s uncertain housing market might be a risky move.
“The challenge in the housing market today is that there are many who can not sell their homes, and many who are technically insolvent," Dahl told Berlingske. “One should think very carefully before introducing such a tax.”
