Too much tax?

This week’s Surrey Comet has the following story http://www.surreycomet.co.uk/news/localnews/display.var.1484729.0.councils_2m_surplus.php

This will be of interest to Council Tax payers everywhere. It would seem on the face of it that the Lib Dems’ highest Council Tax in London need not have been quite so high after all.

In the face of these figures Scrutiny Panel members on Tuesday this week were at something of a loss to understand why the Lib Dem Executive has voted to save an estimated £100,000 this year by restricting Social Service help to only the top two tiers of need of the four tiers established by the government, on the basis of rather flimsy evidence. The Panel referred the decision back to the Executive for deeper thought.

As it happens £100,000 is just a few thousand more than the annual cost of producing ‘Livin’ (sic) Kingston’. A matter of priorities?
