Paying twice for a rubbish service
HOMEOWNERS face paying a second tax for their household rubbish to be collected as part of a range of proposals to reform council tax, The Times has learnt.
I already pay £2000 a year to my local council and as far as I can see the weekly collection of a couple of bags of rubbish is about all I get in return - of course I see where the council spunks away money left, right and centre, subsidising yummy mummies to be pampered in luxurious leisure centres - why do I have to pay for that? - forward planning, making up grandiose schemed that will never happen, why am I paying for some planners' wet dreams? - Educational services, preventing half the money the taxpayers spend on education ever reaching the schools - building libraries, but not for books but so the feckless can borrow DVDs for less than Blockbusters...
So now having spent all the money on useless bloody projects they want to come back again for more money for the one service that used to be half decent. How nu-Labour, how Gordon Brown!
