If Inflation Is Below 2% How Come My Town Rates Precept

Recommended Posts

This inflation below 2% is as with everything associated with this corrupt Nu Labour government ......BULLSH*T

Just read a letter from the Mayor telling me what a great job they the council are doing. It then went on to state an example of charges for this coming year as against last years charges. For a Band B property last years charges were 78p a day, this coming year it will rise to 96p. Of course the Wife says...it's ony 18p a day extra...to which I replied it's the percentages that matter.

Edit: now if this was matched by a 23% wage increase, even though the value of the pound is tanking I dare ...................

Unfortunately tax increases of any kind are not included in the inflation figure as they are not strictly speaking inflationary.........but merely a transfer of money from one group of people (you and me#) to another (eg retired policemen and firemen)

I wonder though. If you regularly save £100 per month that would be money not spent in the economy.

Taxes go up, so you now can save only £50 pm, and the other £50 goes towards paying firemans / coppers pension. They get your 50 quid and blow it on crap.

Net result is more money chasing goods than otherwise would have occured.
