Scare mongering or genuine chance?

Council tax payments 'could increase'

Household bills could be set to increase further, as millions of people around the country may be set to see their council tax payments grow. This is according to a Labour MP in response to plans from a number of councils to potentially charge low income and vulnerable households up to 25 per cent of their burden.

    “Just as happened with the poll tax, councils will be forced to chase people on low incomes for money they simply don’t have”, she added

    Firstly, Hilary Benn is male, secondly, of course they can collect it, just deduct the amount from their benefits or welfare payments. Surely it cannot be beyond the wit of mankind to set up a single system where all cash transfers (benefit and pensions payments out; tax payments and social rent payments back in) are netted off to one single figure? The simpler the system is, the better this works.

  • It won’t happen because the wrinklies will complain.

    They will burden the productive private sectors further. For more info, see the last 10 years.

    Khards, but the pensioners live on a different planet, they describe themselves as hard working (see last Friday’s Daily Express), they claim that they have paid enough tax in the past (they haven’t) and that this entitles them to loadsamoney now (it doesn’t). They also claim that they won World War Two (most of them didn’t) in order to protect the Hallowed Green Belt from the Nazis etc.

    Suffice to say – making dole claimants pay council tax is GOOD because “people should contribute to cost of local services” but making pensioenrs pay council tax is BAD because “it is an attack on wealth”.
