Labour's Fair Deal for Pensioners

Labour was clearly impressed by the Liberal Democrat's election pledge of a fair deal for pensioners. How can I tell? Well this article in yesterday Guardian suggests so.

However it appears that instead of taking them out of the unfair council tax as we were proposing and giving them a decent pension they are merely going to defer payment to the inheritors. So with one fell swoop they are going to increase inheritance tax.

Is that really prudent Mr Brown or just another stealth tax?
