THE Conservative Party is to unveil a new tax strategy based on asking voters exactly how much it's going to take.
Shadow Chancellor George Osborne is expected to tell the Tory conference in Blackpool that, "hardworking families are sick and tired of not being asked what their magic number is".
Osborne will outline his plans to send a letter, email or text message to every household in the country asking how much they want and whether they want it all at once.
One senior Tory source said: "We've still got to thrash out the details. Do they want a grand? Two grand?
"Who knows, they may even want five grand, in which case we're going to have to sell the hospitals to China."
The move comes after a series of opinion polls showed that voters believe the Tories are still not offering them enough money.
The source added: "If I was an ordinary British worker I think I'd want about £1500 so I could spend it on a sunshine holiday, some new alloys for my Vauxhall and perhaps a 'season ticket'."
The move comes on the day the Government increased tax on petrol, bad manners and unfriendly cats.
