Julian Bell: WANTED for hiking Council Tax 26%

Wanted - Julian Bell

In 2003 both Labour and Liberal Democrat councillors in Ealing voted for a 26% rise in council tax in one year. The minutes of the meeting record the names of the guilty. In the 2002-2006 period council tax went up 47% and by 26% in one year in 2003.

Labour say they have learnt their lesson but the truth is that Labour can’t be trusted with money and the record of the LibDems in power in local government is that they are worse.
