Heather Wakefield on Council Tax

Readers of this blog will have noted that there is a growing tendency of Tory controlled councils to irresponsibly freeze Council Tax, thus creating unnecessary budget pressures which in turn results in cuts to much needed services.
Council Tax freezes are not just an East Midlands issue; they are happening all over the country. Indeed in some council they are cutting council tax, whilst at the same time cutting services to the vulnerable.

Heather Wakefield, UNISON's Nataionl Secerary for Local Government, has wrtten about this here in her blog on the Public Finance website. Heather has shown how the simplistic and healdine grabbing approach to Council Tax will resut in misery for thousands of vulnerable people. It is the economics of the mad house.
