Council Tax 7%

Recommended Posts

Will we have two inflation figures? The GB inflation figure which will be small and not change much and then the real world inflation figures which is GB's inflation figure + a value intended to show inflation on things people actually have to spend money on.

That way GB could live in his own little dreamland for some considerably time to come.

Lets face it as time goes on he's less likely to be pm.

Wifeswap last night - one woman couldn't get over being given a budget of £300 spending money for herself and refused to even spend £12 on a bottle of perfume. It was tragic to watch - but she argued with the bloke about him living "maxxed out" - which implied their life was debt funded.

It was quite funny - as these things usually are - but this was the first one were they really mention a difference in money & spending habits...

It is phooey, the whole lot of it.

This is the housing compenent fromt eh RPI index.

There was also a large downward effect from depreciation costs – the amount home owners need to spend to maintain their property – as house prices used in their calculation rose by less than last year

So it costs less to maintain a property this year than last year right? LOL.

I'd have to say its unlikely - unless they're figuring in the discounts at B&Q at the moment.

Presumably what they're saying is that they factor in an amount that's a percentage of average house prices i.e. HP fell last year so the measured cost of maintaining it dropped also. Crazy way of measuring it!

A million pounds does not go as far as it used to, with people now needing nearly £3m to lead a millionaire's lifestyle, new research suggests.

See! now thats inflation surely?!

CPI - 2.5%

Council Tax - 7%

When are the BOE going to stop peddling the lie about low inflation?

Council tax up by 7% in 2006

Daily Mail

18 October 2005

NEXT year's council tax bills are likely to rocket by three times the rate of inflation, Gordon Brown was warned yesterday.

Good post!

The council tax looks more like a mortgage with each passing year.

7% rise?

I wonder if crime will be 7% less? If the streets will be 7% cleaner?

Or if the council will have a 7% pay-rise?

The money's going to fund final-salary civil service pensions. F'ing great.
