Apparently, you are all happy to pay 20 percent more Council Tax.

The Daily Mail

 

Just who the fuck do these piss taking cunts think they are fooling?

What the following article means is that there is going to be a major hike in council tax bills as the raid on the middle classes begins.

I mean, are these cunts seriously telling me that a poll of 500 people, would be happy to accept a hike of 20 percent on their annual Council Tax Bill?

Where did they poll? Mayfair, Tatton and North Leamington?

Yet I don’t doubt for a minute that the no good cunts running Britain’s councils will be all happy to agree that the 500 people are representative of the fucking country… But only because the corrupt cunts are mostly useless, perverted nonce, robbing bastards.

The streets should be litter free without any fucking hike in council tax. As should your dustbins be emptied regularly and the grass verges cut.

Yet the moronic Mail would have you believe that:

“Hard-pressed families are apparently ready to pay extra taxes of hundreds of pounds a year to have more litter cleared from their streets, ministers were told yesterday”.

This fucking propaganda rag  wants closing down and the stupid cunts who peddle this propaganda to the MSM want a good hard kick in the bollocks, before being dragged out of their posh fucking offices and made to eat any litter that happens to be laying around the streets.

Then again, if the £140 pound a year that you pay in car tax was given to local councils instead of being swallowed up by the fraudulent national debt, your council wouldn’t have to fund road maintenance – Not that they do judging by the fucking potholes. But you know what I mean.

Moreover if pointless quangos were ousted and we stopped our corrupt councillors from going on all expenses paid, pointless holidays fact finding missions, not to mention stopping their outrageous fucking expenses and extremely generous, yet undeserved salaries, then there would be more still in the pot.

As for  the MP Owen Pratterson the vile, evil cunt! He’s just the same as all the other millionaire ponces in parliament. A rich, highly paid, under worked, parasite taking the right fucking piss.

IT HAS TO FUCKING STOP!

But the hikes not about improving services is it. Its as I say, the start of  the looting of the Middle Classes.

And they will moan, before complying like good, frightened, spineless slaves do.

Dog, people make me fucking sick.

Me? I still ain’t paid my council con tax, despite RDC having apparently having taken me to court… Ho fucking hum.

 

 

Would you pay 20% more council tax for litter-free streets? Civil servants propose increase based on survey of just 500 people

  • Proposed litter taxes would cost a family of four almost £200
  • Would be paying for better litter clearance and chewing gum cleared from pavements
  • Campaigners argue the ‘extras’ should be done by councils anyway

Price tag: Under Owen Patterson's Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs' proposal, a family of four would pay almost £200 for extra clean-upsPrice tag: Under Owen Patterson’s Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ proposal, a family of four would pay almost £200 for clean-ups

Hard-pressed families are apparently ready to pay extra taxes of hundreds of pounds a year to have more litter cleared from their streets, ministers were told yesterday.

Civil servants based their recommendation on the views of barely more than 500 people who answered a questionnaire.

They believe council tax payers will accept hikes of nearly 20 per cent for better litter clearance and more if town halls remove chewing gum from pavements or clean up dog mess.

The litter taxes calculated by Owen Paterson’s Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs would cost a family of four almost £200 – and much more for other kinds of clean-up.

DEFRA, which tried under Gordon Brown to charge ‘pay-as-you-throw’ taxes to take household refuse away, drew up its scale of possible council tax rises on the basis of research it commissioned.

The Institute for Transport Studies, at the University of Leeds, and the Transport Studies Group at Loughborough University picked 561 people in London, Manchester and Coventry and set them questionnaires asking how much extra council tax they were prepared to pay. 

The results were greeted with outrage from campaign groups, saying the litter tax scale amounted to a stealth increase to council tax.

DEFRA said that for improved litter clearance people would pay £3.95 a month for each person in a home, which amounts to £189.60 a year for a family of four.

 

In all, a four-person household would be willing to pay more than £900 for noticeable improvements in ten aspects of their local environment, DEFRA said.

The sum would mean a rise of almost 90 per cent on the average English council tax bill of £1,045.

The document said potential charges would be ‘assessed and reflected in the decision-making process’ and that the numbers could ‘usefully inform national decisions’.

A load of rubbish: Campaigners and taxpayers criticised the proposal, saying the survey was too limited and the council should be doing these jobs anywayA load of rubbish: Campaigners and taxpayers criticised the proposal, saying the survey was too limited and the council should be doing these jobs anyway

But campaigners said taxpayers should refuse to pay any extra charges on their council bills.

Christine Melsom, of the Is It Fair? group, said: ‘These are all things the councils should be doing already. 

‘I am not willing to pay another penny, and I am puzzled how DEFRA found anybody who said they were. 

‘The Government will have a revolt on its hands if it tries to do anything to get this money from people.

‘Thousands and thousands will just refuse to pay.’

Jonathan Isaby, of the Taxpayers’ Alliance, said: ‘DEFRA has absolutely no business spending taxpayers’ money commissioning surveys with the aim of suggesting hikes in council tax.
