Town Hall should not be doing Tories’ dirty work

02 February, 2018

• COUNCIL tax is going to soar. The Labour finance chief says we are asking people to pay a bit more (Soaring council tax hits ceiling, January 26).

For many people on stagnant wages and fixed incomes, it is money they don’t have when they are only keeping their heads above water now.

The council should not take its lead from a government underfunding services by doing its dirty work. The council should understand that local government minister Sajid Javid hopes voters will blame Islington Council, and not the government, at forthcoming elections.
