The first of many tax rises I suspect – Council Tax to rise by 5%
I suspect that this will be first tax rise of many. Council taxes will now rise by 5%. Have a look at how your council spends your money. You will probably find that a massive amount (30%) will be spent on their inflation proofed index linked council pensions. Next increase is fuel tax - this also goes up in April. It's a booming economy - booming taxes, booming food prices, booming fuel prices - more economic miracles from Gordon!
