the person who invented council tax, I will actually stab them.
Of course, you get taxed at over 40% for only earning 28,000 euros so ups and downs...
thankfully, I don't pay it :)
i think on the radio they were saying it's gone up 80% since labour came to power
in years. God bless this country
it's still better than poll tax.
in cardiff and i am pissed off enough.....i shudder to think of london prices
less in london than elsewhere.
is the extortionate amount they charge, for the very little benefit seen
seen except your local councillor will probably be looking a bit redder in the face and have a more expensive suit on
i was reading today that it only funds about a quarter of such things, the rest comes from central government.
that it's charged based on property value.
now, there's no way in hell i could afford to buy the flat i live in as it's worth about Â£200,000 (i could get a mortgage for about 60% of that at a push) yet i'm expected to pay council tax at a level as if i could afford to buy it.
haha i sound like a twat
of someone who is a bit buggered by the current system
no idea who to vote for anymore
I'm thinking about going for prime minister in the next election. I can't be worse than Thatcher, right? We need a woman! Vote for fanny! Vote for real labour and lets keep the NHS going before Blair rules out the NHS system completly!
I have finished.
youve got my vote........what else you got planned?
and you want other policies as well?
i was hoping for some tits too....is that too much to ask
maybe you're correct to be demanding, then. and some ass, while we've got the petitions printed.
we don't have council tax (and never had poll tax either) - we still have rates.
My house, which I own, costs me about 220 quid a year in rates... which is nice.
Marilyn will give free milk to children! Free tampons and towels to women! And one will treat the OAPS with more dignity and respect than this government will EVER SHOW! Also, we need to sort out the mental health system!
Toast a drink or two and let me get on!
I promise I won't slippery nippley down the path of Mr Kennedy, and I'm not ginger.
Right, I'll get onto the local election tomorrow.
I am actually getting serious about this...
Just give me a cushy postion somewhere
And we will lower council tax! And stop the richer and the poor getting poorer!
I'm off to take my medication...there will be a election meeting tomorrow.
Don't be late (12pm)
but that's with 25% off as i get single person's discount.
still a lot to pay on my own. SIGH.
But then again my house cost less than 50k when i bought it...
who lived in a place for over 2 years without getting a gas bill, and then suddenly got one for the full arrears.
I hope Cambridgeshire County Council aren't reading this.
NTL once threatened me with legal action over a bill that I hadn't paid, because I had moved out of that house to another house and had phoned to tell them this.
So they kept sending bills to the house I moved out of, the fucking idiots.
nice clean roads and binmen and trees on the pavement and public transport. I'm happy to pay it.
if i had lots of dosh.
trees on the pavement do a lot of good. you'd probably spend your 50 quid on drugs if it wasn't for the trees
it's just the way it's calculated that should be an issue. can you afford to buy the flat you live in?
