Bring out your prejudices…
Pensioner facing jail for refusing to pay full council tax' because she doesn't want to dip into her savings'
"The widow, who receives state and private pensions of around Â£9,000 a year, was brought to court for non-payment of council tax by South Norfolk District Council... Mrs Farrow who has no children and lives alone with her nine-year-old Alsation called Sheba vowed to continue only paying Â£25 a month as she did not think it was fair on her to pay more. Nita Eagle, the council's a debt recovery manager, said Mrs Farrow had been liable to pay a single payment of Â£95.21 and nine subsequent payment of Â£99 on her Band C property." Yup, she's happy taking Â£9,000 from the taxpayer each but she doesn't want to pay anything back into the pot. Look love, if you don't want to pay the Council Tax there are millions of young people who would be delighted to do so :-)
